My story

[p][b][span=color: #ff0000;]South Downs Way[lt]span style="color: #ff0000;"[gt] [i][lt]span style="background-color: #ffff00;"[gt]DOUBLE[/span][/i][lt]/span[gt][lt]/span[gt][/b][/p][p][span=color: #0000ff;][b]10th June[/b] [/span]- I'll be running with Andy, Paul and Frank, departing Winchester at 0600 hrs and hoping to arrive in Eastbourne the next day, having run the full 100 miles, [b]non-stop[/b], in around 24 hrs.  A scary prospect, but...[/p][p]A couple of years ago, at 46, I was diagnosed with Prostate Cancer.  'Young' and fit, I didn't fall within any of the usual patient's profiles.  A simple MOT blood test kicked it off.  It was 'good news', they caught it early, we dealt with it and here I am.  Being told you have Cancer is a challenging thing, telling your family is harder still.  This one is to slap the big C in the face.  It's not just the old 'uns, the boozers and smokers who get it, so go get checked, spread the word and be lucky.[/p][p][b][span=color: #0000ff;]28th June[/span][/b] - I will be in Winchester once again, this time setting off with half of my Rockspring colleagues on a 4 day walk/run to, once again, cover the 100 miles to Eastbourne.  This time to raise funds for some great charities.  With only 16 days to recover from the first outing, I'm hoping the blisters and joints recover quickly![/p][p]If you are a colleague taking part, please just spread the word on the simple blood test to have for Prostate Cancer, if not, any donation no matter how small (or big!) would be greatly appreciated.[/p][p]Cheers[/p][p]JR [/p]
