I will be running the Barns Green 10k on 24th September 2017 in memory of my beautiful sister, Diane, who was taken from us far too early. She passed away at the age of 40 in October 2014.
I had been struggling with her death and with my emotions for quite some time so when I was told in September 2016 that I had depression because I wasn't coping, this was quite a shock. I was advised to focus on something so I started running. Mental Health and running are two things which I never thought would go together but how wrong could I be!! I decided in October last year that the Barns Green 10k would be my goal as this is where we grew up together. When I set this goal , I couldn't run for 10 seconds let alone 10k but I've persevered and here I am, asking for donations to raise money for Ataxia UK and to support me, running in memory of Diane.
Always in our hearts, never forgotten xx
