Over the past year, I have re-started my hobby of running. It all started when. unfortunately, my mum was diagnosed with Cancer. There’s more about that here.
Over the weekend, was my first race of 2018, where I was in the Cancer Research UK London Winter Run. It was my first race outside of South Yorkshire and on a potential flat PB course. The event is well organised and was in its fourth year as an event. With 20,500 people expected and a sold-out event, the race times were different depending on individuals time targets specified at registration. What this meant was that my allocated time was 10:18, for my estimated time, which was around 1 hour. I entered this race before I ran Percy Pud, so didn’t think I could get below the 1-hour barrier.
As most of you are aware, my mother was diagnosed with stage 2 non-Hodgkins Lymphoma in December 2016, It was a lengthy treatment of Chemotherapy, and I would never wish anything like this for anyone.
