On the 24th of May 2020 I will be running the Edinburgh Half Marathon to raise funds for Cancer Research who as you all know do incredible work to fight this horrible disease that affects so many of us.
The date, cause and city are all very special to me as on 24th May 2004 I lost my amazing mum to cancer. I thought what better way to celebrate her memory than to run the Edinburgh Half Marathon which falls on the same date. Edinburgh is where my mum grew up and the city where I was born, it's a city that holds many cherished memories and will always have a special place in my heart.
As some of you know I'm relatively new to running so although this isn't my 1st half marathon it definitely wont be a walk in the park! To push me on I'll try and run a half decent time (for me!) and I also want to raise some money for Cancer Research. So please anything you can donate, however small will be gratefully received and hopefully will help bring forward the date when all cancers will be cured.
