Hi. I'm proud of myself. So I wanted to share in case anyone out there needs encouragement.
I'm 55 and 5 years ago I was diagnosed with my second cancer, breast cancer. It had spread to my lymph nodes. I had a double mastectomy and reconstruction. Lost my job, got divorced, gained 3 stone. My health got worse as I couldn't walk up stairs without gasping for breath. Then in February I said enough!
I joined a weight loss group - lost 2 1/2 stone and then started running. It took me ten weeks to run 5K but I did it last week (twice) and although it took me 46 and 42 minutes each time to complete I felt amazing.
I can't wait for my next run (it's this morning) - I'm hooked and loving being fit and healthy again.
