My training for the London Marathon is continuing and I have now got some of my biggest runs behind me. Having now done an 18 and a 20 miler, my mileage will now slowly decrease towards the big day. Training, as before, has been plagued with missed runs, illness, and just the general pressures of everyday life getting in the way. Nevertheless, I feel as prepared as I can be, and in some ways, I am excited to embark upon the 26.2 miles once again.
Shonagh took part in our campaign about secondary breast cancer that has been featured on posters onboard trains in the South East over the last few weeks, as well as on our website and social media channels. The campaign aims to raise awareness of secondary breast cancer and asks people to support us to fund research which will help us find the cures.
Here, Shonagh tells us why taking part in the campaign was important to her.
