I decided to sign up to the Swansea half as a personal goal, to try and push myself to complete something I never thought I could. Having worked hard training over the passed few weeks I’ve decided to run this race in memory of my most favourite human, my grandad. We unfortunately lost him to Leukemia which has helped make my decision of what charity to run for a lot easier.

I know that although he may not be here in person he will be with me every step of this challenge and will push me to achieve my goal of running the whole 13.2 miles in sub 2hrs 30mins.
