Third in family to do the C2 5k

Third in family to do the C2 5k

Hi I started the C2 5k last October and although it took me 10 weeks I completed it. I was apprehensive as I had a brain tumour removed last March. After speaking to the consultant she was very supportive and said that I was able to do it. I had witnessed both my husband and daughter completing the C2 5k. Our daughter has ME and if she could I thought why can't I. In February K went along to our local park run and thoroughly enjoyed the experience as I was able to go at my own pace whilst running/ jogging /walking but completing the 5k. Since then I have completed 3 more parkruns and volunteered once as a marshall. Everyone is so encouraging and supportive. The C2 5k helped me along the way and I've even lost weight and I have more energy as a result.

  • Thank you. Our daughter inspired me as well.

  • Thank you for sharing this - and so glad you are recovering so well and getting stronger all the time by the sound of it. Keep on running!☺

  • Thank you. Yes each day is better than the day before which is good. Definitely will keep on running but being a volunteer at the local parkrun is also brilliant I can support and encourage others as well. I would encourage others to not only run but volunteer at a local parkrun its nice getting positive comments back from the runners as well as saying it to them.
