In January 2014 my father sadly lost his long battle with Cancer.  This dreadful disease finally defeated him after a six year long battle.

However my father was a true fighter until the very end, initially on diagnosis he was given only six months to live, however due to amazing care and strongest will Ive ever come across he lived far longer.

This has inspired me, whatever the task you can achieve any goals with the right attitude. Therefore my poor little body is being put through its paces in serious Marathon training mode.  I've completed several runs so far in preparation and now im tackling some BIG challenges

30km run on the 15th February 2015

Mablethorpe Marathon 4th October
