I’ve completed my first 10K today, having run the Lincoln 10K. My husband and son ran it last year and I vowed I would never do it! However, a few months later, I got into running on the treadmill at the gym and gradually built up my distance and determination that I would run it after all!
My other son, Ben, had a cardiac condition causing supra-ventricular tachycardia and needed a surgical procedure, which he has recently had with a very successful outcome. He had been quite affected by his condition which meant he couldn’t exercise without fear of having an episode and was on medication.
My niece has the same condition and is having her procedure later this month. Ben is now planning to join the gym and start running as well, with a view of running with us next year. I am very happy that I have managed to raise quite a lot of money for CRY, and it has also helped with my incentive to do my run.
