Salma first told me about her plans to run in memory of her Nani, who died of cancer 20 years ago, over dinner last year. She spoke about it with such passion that there was no hesitation - I just offered to run with her.
As well as Salma's Nani, I shall be running in memory of my Great Uncle Roy who was swiftly taken by cancer nearly 20 years ago. He was so full of life - a real cheeky chap - that it didn't seem possible that he could ever leave us.
You'll probably know that neither of us are the sporty type - but we are training! I've invested in a running machine and a 'Couch to 5k' app which are helping, and numerous running groups on Facebook that aren't helping in the slightest!
Please do support us - even if you can only give a tiny amount it all be going to help find cures for cancer and we'll be grateful.
