Story

A bit more than 5 years ago I made one of the best decisions of my life and walked through the door of a local Weight Watchers group.  My life since that moment has completely transformed - I went on to lose 14 stones over about 2 years(more than my husband weighs!) and developed a strange new passion for exercise!  Earlier in the year I ran the Blackpool half in memory of my Aunty Doreen, sadly lost too soon to cancer.  Now I am running in memory of my Uncle John as well as my Aunty, and also the many friends whose lives have been touched by this cruel disease.

ANY support greatly appreciated - because honestly I am very, very scared at this point!  First Marathon and it is only a few weeks away and I am wondering what on Earth am I doing!
