I’ve been slacking in my running for a fair bit, and not doing my usual distances.
This last week, I’ve been through the painful process of saying goodbye to my uncle from the viewing in the mortuary, to the final viewing, the funeral, and the internment of the ashes.
Cancer is a horrible condition, indiscriminate and relentless. But it doesn’t always mean death. Research has allowed cancer patients a good quality of life compared to a few decades ago and it continues to grow as research progresses.
In 2014 I did the Royal Parks Half Marathon (completion post here). It was a painful experience, but one I’m going to attempt to go for again. I’m going to train up for another Half Marathon and this time nominate a cancer charity. The current primary charity I’m thinking of is Cancer Research UK.
