I ran a marathan yesterday!!

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.

Amazing,

I'm new to the site and just can't believe what you have been through and where you are now. 

Running a marathon. I'm struggling to run to the loo at the mo. 

Just goes to show the fight is so worth it. 

Big thumbs up to all of u for what u have raised. Not just money, but oc awareness. 

Makes me so positive for the future. Xx

Well done you, that is a fantastic achievement I am impressed to say the least! I'm doing a 10k a week on Sunday and have been wondering whether i should have entered or not! (Lol) but now I know I'm being silly because it's absolutely nothing compared to what you've just done! RESPECT TO YOU, AMAZING ACHIEVEMENT!!! Xxxxx

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 😁😃

Many congratulations on that amazing feat! I can't walk to the local shop which is less than 200 yards away, without my muscles aching.

Keep up the running,it obviously does you good.

Best wishes,
