My personal message:

I am not sure how it happened, but I have been convinced into undertaking my first 10k on the 18th October for Cancer Research.  Never thought I would be doing this as up until a month ago, I would never run in the gym, on the roads, at school, I just avoided it at all costs.  As a result I have been doing my best to fight the urge to give up and get ready for the 10k, and aim to complete the run without dying :)

As some of you will be aware, in the last year my family has been hit hard with cancer with my brother taking ill with thyroid cancer, but with the treatment and care he received, managed to make a full recovery.  On top of this, my sister was diagnosed with a non operable brain tumour shortly before Christmas and is still fighting it.  It was with this in mind I thought it was worth trying to get a bit fitter and raise some money for a good cause so please dig deep and please give whatever you can.

Thanks and wish me luck
