2017 has been a tough year, losing my Dad in March after his four year battle with asbestos cancer was heart breaking. Mesothelioma UK exist to support people with this disease, a disease which is incurable and one that can take many years to occur after exposure, the latency period often being between 15-45 years!

Up to 2500 people in the UK die of this diesease every year and my Dad, sadly, was one of them. 

In 2014 I ran my first London Marathon and my Dad was proudly there to support me and see me complete my biggest physical challenge. In 2016 he was already too unwell to attend but diligently tracked me via the London Marathon app. 

In 2017, in his memory and to raise awareness of and funds for Mesothelioma UK I will be running the Loch Ness Marathon on the 24th September and then following that up with the Great South Run on the 22nd October. I am aiming to travel the length of the county, with Dad in my heart to run both events.

As ever, my friends and family, I am eternally grateful for your support. Training started on the 4th June with the London 10 Mile Race in Richmond Park. I have never trained over the summer for a marathon before and I have no doubt that it will be tough! Any donations will make it so much more fulfilling so thank you in advance!
