I ran a marathan yesterday!!

After the upset of being put on watch and wait in March I decided to carry on with my running  something that has really helped me deal with my diagnosis and subsequent treatments, ops etc helping me sustain a decent level of fitness! I signed up for the MK marathon and with the encouragement of my lovely running buddy sara and my amazing husband Darren we completed it in 6 hours 😊 I really felt all the way round I was sticking 2 fingers up to cancer....strange I know!! Managed to raise just shy of £600 also.

  • I have done 3 before but none since my recurrence and I must admit I haven't done much training! :-/ I usually try and beat the hour but I think I'll have to take it easy and just not be so competitive against myself! It's on 25th may so I'll let you know. Again what a fantastic achievement you did, you must be so proud of yourself and so you should be! Hope you continue to feel well and I'll let you know how it goes!xx 😁😃
