Last year I did the Race for Life and helped raise money for cancer. Little did I know that less than a year later, I would be a cancer fighter.
At the start of the year when the dates were released I started the process of entering again but something kept holding me back. I did the same for the NAS 10K in Manchester, got the forms but just held back on sending them off. I then found out that I had breast cancer and decided that I would take a year out of running.
I was so disappointed because the Race for Life is such a wonderful event. An all woman race with women of all ages either running or walking to raise money for cancer. I am so proud of the medal I got last year.
BC (Before cancer) I was also doing Weight Watchers because I had 2 stone to lose. I had put this weight on as a result of a hormone imbalance caused by the meriner coil! (another story). I am part of a fantastic group led by Dawn who meet at Gresford Methodist Church every Friday morning and also, I had built up a fab friendship base with weight watchers who use the New Community User page. Most of these friends are my face book friends and we keep in touch regularly.
Anyway, some of the WW NCU's are doing the Race for Life and some of them are/have done it in honour of me! the first one was Caroline in Scotland who took part in the biggest ever Race for Life. She is pictured at the top of my blog. Thank you Caroline, you are a star!
