For those who know me - this is literally couch to 13 miles (eeeek)!! I am most certainly not an exercise type of person, so this is a big deal for me.

My late but wonderful mother challenged me to challenge myself by signing up for and completing the Cardiff Half Marathon this year! Challenge was accepted, on the proviso that she would be at the finish line to watch me run over it! Sadly, after passing away, she won't be there - but nevertheless I am fully determined to do this and make her, myself, my family and all of you who know me proud!

I am hoping that my colleagues at Women's aid RCT will be cheering me on :)
