Me (and my husband) running the Coniston 15k challenge trail race at the weekend!!!

This included running (and walking;-)) tough climbs, tricky (but fun) descents, beautiful scenery over rocky paths, streams, mud, gravel tracks and grass along with lots of determined people but mostly an overwhelming sense of achievement completing it less than 4 months after finishing first line treatment for stage 3 OC!!! :-) :-) :-)

  • Wow that's impressive! I thought you were quick on your feet running for the train in York. You must be tremendously fit and very determined. A great achievement and may there be many more ahead. I rather think there will. Many congratulations!!!
