Katy does the Great North Run

Hi everybody! I'm at it again. This time it's the Great North Run and I'm raising money for Myeloma UK.

My Mum has myeloma, an incurable form of blood cancer. Myeloma UK are an amazing charity who focus on increasing the life expectancy of myeloma patients. Without them, my Mum might not still be here today. They are the only UK charity dedicated to the research and development of new treatments for myeloma and giving patients access to life-extending drugs and treatments. In a word, they are A W E S O M E. But don't just take my word for it, go and check them out at www.myeloma.org.uk. 

So anyways, I know what you're all thinking, the Great North Run is no biggie after running a marathon. Well that was well over a year ago now and I can assure you that I've spent way more time eating pies and drinking pints than running since then. It will hurt, I guarantee it.
