My mum has recently lost a long battle with cancer.
This is something which I am going to be struggling to come to terms with for a long time, I have lost a lot more than just my mum, I have lost my best friend and I am going to always miss her.
What makes going through this even more difficult is that there is nothing you can do to stop it or make it better. You feel helpless.
As a result of this I have decided that I wanted to do something to raise money which might help somebody else not to have to go through what she had to go through. This is why I have decided that I am going to run 1,000 miles through the course of 2019.
This is going to be particularly challenging for me as I am currently about 40lbs outside of the healthy BMI range and before this happened I had not run for about 6 and a half months.
