Over the course of starting this programme I have made my husband Derek so proud of my achievements. He had oesophageal cancer so it seemed right to put my name down to do the Race for Life and he watched, encouraged and applauded me as I reached 5k and then 10k. And since then I have not run.
He was supposed to be there, waiting at the finish line when I do my Race in May but he won't and instead of running for him I will be running in his memory.
I wouldn't ordinarily ask this but this is obviously very close to my heart so if anyone wants to donate to my JustGiving page for Cancer Research you can find it here:
