Those of you that know me well will know this already, but the idea of me running half a mile let alone half a marathon would have been a total joke a few years ago. I’ve trained really hard and now feel like there’s half a chance I might finish the Royal Parks Half Marathon in spite of my COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) and all of the breathing problems that come with it.

I’m so excited to raise money for Haven House Children’s Hospice - having watched people I love suffer with the challenges of children’s illnesses I think it’s a fantastic cause. Haven House believe in the best possible life for every baby, child and young person with a life-limiting or life-threatening condition and their families in our local communities. Please support me in supporting them.
