I'm running my first ever half marathon. Me! Last-in-the-bleep-test, athletic-as-a-hedgehog, triple-bra-wearing Grearson. 

I'm running on home turf, in Coventry, for Cancer Research UK, because too many people I love have been hurt by cancer. And I'm scared about who the bastard might hurt in years to come.

And because when my five-year-old asks us 'Why do people get cancer?', we still don't know what to say.

A Race for Life nine years ago got me started. I'm still going. And I'll keep going until my stumpy legs give up. Until we have more answers. 

Your cash will help us get there. Thank you so much.
