BACK ON MY FEET

Runner's World (UK) - - Human Race -

Last year I was given the news that I had breast cancer. My RW mag­a­zines piled up un­opened, as treat­ment knocked my run­ning con­fi­dence – not to men­tion my stamina – side­ways. But hav­ing gained a char­ity place with Macmil­lan in this year’s Lon­don Marathon, I dug out a tried-and-trusted RW train­ing pro­gramme and am now re­dis­cov­er­ing the joy of long Sun­day runs. I can­not wait to line up on 23 April. I won't be chas­ing a time – I’m just grate­ful and happy to be able to be there.
