My story

[p]I am running (with my sister-in-law, Mary) the Swansea half marathon on 23rd June 2018 in memory of my mum, Barbara Smith, who I know would be surprised that I do such 'crazy' running things! [/p][p]My Mum died of acute on chronic liver failure on 3rd March 2015. It was a complete shock and devastating to us all. My mum was the heart of our family and she was an incredibly special person. We all miss her very much. I started to run more after my mum died as the time pushing myself physically enabled me to dull the consuming pain from grief. [/p][p]We have raised money for the British Liver Trust before and I want to continue fundraising for them as little is known about Mum's illness and more research is needed into non-alcohol related liver conditions.[/p][p]In addition, I want to raise funds and awareness for Cruse Bereavement Service. I am raising money for the Bristol branch of Cruse as they helped me last year when I needed support in dealing with my grief. They gave me time and guidance to help me begin to understand my grief and deal with life without my mum. I will always be grateful to them for counselling I had there.[/p][p]Thank you very much for your support and donation.[/p][p]Sarah x[/p][p][br][/p][p]photo below is of my Isle of Wight training run whilst camping there in half term...tough but very beautiful!
