TO RE­MEM­BER SAMMY

‘My sis­ter Sammy and I had al­ways planned to run Lon­don to­gether, but she suf­fered a fa­tal heart at­tack at just 26 years of age. It seems only right that I do it in her mem­ory. Sammy was seven years older than me, and the per­son I went to for sup­port and ad­vice. Know­ing I’m run­ning in her mem­ory makes it eas­ier to train through the cold and rain, and know­ing I’m rais­ing money for the Bri­tish Heart Foun­da­tion to help other fam­i­lies avoid go­ing through this has helped me come to terms with her loss.’
