** Devastatingly, on the 25Th November Tess lost her fight, she was an inspiration for me in running this marathon and I know she will be with me all the way** After watching the London Marathon last year I had a brief moment Of inspiration and on a whim I entered the ballot for the 2020 London Marathon, knowing full well how slim my chances were of getting in... 7000 ballot places are awarded to 457,000 applicants!
Imagine my surprise when I got a letter saying that I had been successful, I think my exact words were “oh S**t”
Now onto some real inspiration and who I have chosen to raise some money for....we have recently had some devastating news about one of our close friends, our friend was diagnosed with triple negative breast cancer. The cancer has unfortunately since progressed and Spread, currently undergoing treatment and fighting this evil thing with all she has got...she is my inspiration!
Shine bright is a charity that helps women suffering with this disease by offering treatments to help manage the symptoms and effect that the disease and chemo has on the body and mind. Shine bright also funds research into this particularly aggressive strain of cancer.
Please spare anything you can you help raise money and support this wonderful charity that is helping so many women at the worst times of their lives.
The early mornings, the late nights, the wet dark miserable miles, the quad smashes, the glute rolls, the chafing, the blisters, only 9 toes nail... this is nothing really... help my raise some money to help ease some real suffering.
