I love running taking part in the Great North Run. This year, I'll be there as part of #TeamSage, raising money for Cancer Research.
In the past couple of years I've got to know people close to my age who have loved ones with cancer. They were active people who ran, took part in triathlons, parkrun, surfed, volunteered and generally loved life. Cancer took that away from them. And their families are still getting used to life without them.
So I'm running for all the people who would have loved to have run just one more race, or would love to still be out there. And I hope that by raising money for Cancer Research, more people will be able to beat cancer and continue to enjoy all the things they love doing.
