Months ago I registered to run the Cancer Research Race for Life in Regents Park. Yesterday was the day and I figured I wouldn’t be able to make it so soon after leaving hospital. But when Ananda, Mark & I went for a stroll today there were so many inspiring banners strewn accross the trees that I had to have a go.

Knowing that many women would be walking, and with mp3s plumbed in, I managed to put my months of training to good use, and shuffle-jog my way round the 5km course. Mark & Ananda joined in the warm-up, cheered me on & helped celebrate my momentous finish!
