On the first of March 2019 I came out of hospital, afraid of the world and afraid of myself, very unsure if I was ready to start the long and hard recovery process I was about to face. My wonderful friend Marianne was insanely supportive right from the minute she knew I was unwell, no one has ever shown me that much love in my life, and when she encouraged me to start running with her, it was just another one of her hugely supportive acts that helped me to make it to 2020. On the first of March 2020 I will be running a half marathon with her in order to help raise funds for her beloved Cutty Sark, please please, if you are able to, sponsor me to do something I couldn't have even began to imagine doing this time last year.
