Today would have been my Mother’s 66th birthday had she not died from breast cancer nearly 12 years ago. Sadly it’s not an unusual occurrence. Of my friends there must be at least a dozen whose families have also been affected by cancer before and since. However it’s really heartening to know that thanks in part to the work of the researchers funded by CanToo the prognosis for many cancer diagnoses is so much better now than it was even a decade a go.
Meanwhile the training starts on Wednesday… I’ll need the discipline of training twice a week as my grand plans for pre-training didn’t really go so well. I’ve done a couple of runs and been to the pool a few times, but still I think Wednesday will be a bit of a shock to the system!
