Cancer touches so many lives, mine included. I know too many people who have been deeply affected by it. I'm running the Scottish Half Marathon on 22nd September to raise money for Cancer Research.

This running thing all came about over a very civilised glass of wine. The next thing I know I've signed up for the Scottish Half Marathon and am pounding the back roads in the summer heat, wind and rain, soaking wet and out of breath - very uncivilised! All summer I've been juggling training with childcare, work, after-school activities, weather, holidays, domestic chores and what little remains of my social life, thanking my lucky stars I have my health, my family and my friends. 13.1 miles still seems like a Long Way, but I'm nearly there. Not quite, but nearly. I also wouldn't have come this far without the logistical support of some very special people to whom I owe enormous thanks. You know who you are!

Any little amount you care to donate will very much appreciated, not so much by me as by those who will benefit from the research it will fund.
