A close friend lost her partner, not to cancer a couple of years ago and they both took part in marathons. So a few of us decided to join Juliet on her training sessions and decided to give it a go with four other friends (including Juliet).
All five of us have been touched by cancer in one way or another. My own mother has been diagnosed with cancer a few times over the years and lives to tell her story to this day :), but others have not been so fortunate.
This is my first full marathon and I am determined to complete it with my girls and to raise as much money for the great cause.
