Newcastle 5k 2017
Sun 9 Jul 2017
It would be such an achievement to complete a 5K run as I have never run before.
20 months ago I hit an all time high on the scales and was worried about my physical health. My weight started to increase about 10 years ago after I managed to prolapse two discs in my back and trap my sciatic nerve. I was on daily painkillers and my movement was severely restricted. I decided it was time to do something about it and joined Slimming World. I lost 6 stone during the first year and took the decision to start exercising. This was really difficult as I had not done any proper exercise for many years. I started walking and joined a gym. Now 8 months later I am another 3 stone lighter and have decided to start running. I am now painkiller free and fitter and healthier than I have ever been! I have completely changed my lifestyle and am committed to reaching my target weight which is less than one stone away now! I have set myself another challenge and signed up to run The Race for Life 5K on the 9th July. 20 months ago this would have been impossible! I would love it if you could sponsor me for this event. I have never done anything like this before and really don't know what to expect. Cancer Research UK is a fantastic charity and I feel very proud to support this cause and complete this run.
