On Thursday 28th February we sadly lost our lovely sister Petra. She had been suffering with mental health issues for the last few years and although she was always smiling and happy on the outside, she was extremely low and sensitive on the inside.

I signed up to the Colchester half marathon with Petra which is on the 24th March. I found exercise really helps me to get my head straight and thought it would help her with the way she was feeling. Unfortunately, she will not be there with me, but I feel the need to try run it for her and raise a bit of money along the way.

I’m running on behalf of the Samaritans Charity. They increase awareness about the importance of seeking support when needed.
