Fantastic story, your family must have been so very proud of you, and for you to see them while you were running must have inspired you.
But to be beaten by a beer bottle and a banana! l would keep that quiet if l were you ;>)
Well done indeed .... you should be very, very proud of yourself. I bet you made your family feel fantastic that you're theirs. Thank you
Wow! what a response, thanks guys. I'm feeling better today my legs are feeling like they belong to me again!
I wasn't sure whether to post as I am so acutely aware that there are so many on this site who struggle with normal activities due to this yuk disease nevermind taking on crazy antics, I'm also aware that my fitness could be taken away from me at any time. Here's hoping it has given hope to others that one day it is possible to feel well again.
Good luck everyone and thanks for your support xxxx
So well done fantastic news, you deserve the feel elated about your success. I am in midst of both chemo and radio this year and the most I can manage during treatment is Race for Life which I'm doing in July, but its a real focus to keep me plugging away at the gym which i continue to do on my good days!.
So proud of you, take care,
love Carol x
Wow! Well done for everything, and for inspiring us to keep working at getting our fitness back. It can be done!
Well done and thank you for sharing your story, doing all the hard work entailed in a marathon, raising so much money for this vital support community and for being an inspitation. You are truly a star
I remember you from earlier posts, when we were both going through treatment in 2008. You are amazing, this is a fantastic feat and such a wonderful time you did it in, and huge amount of money you raised.
You are fabulous, well done.
Well done! If you had your name showing, I'm sure my hubby will have cheered you on - I missed it cos I was at work on Sunday, but we're always out cheering people on. I've done the Moonwalk a couple of times (pre BC) but am in awe of people running the 26+ miles!
Well done!!! what an inspiration to us all.....I love to hear great positive stories like this, Just makes me smile...:-)
Wow that's brilliant. My incredibly fit brother ran it this year in 3 hours 49, so for you to do it in that time sounds an amazing feat. Well done for raising all that cash too - brilliant.
Wow! That's fantastic. You should be so proud of yourself! I do not have BC (my mum does) and even I don't think I could do it!
Well done you are an inspiration. Must have been amazing experience and thank you for sharing it with us, fantastic story.
Love Anne xx
Many congratulations on completing the London Marathon and for raising so much money for Breast Cancer Care, it is very much appreciated by everyone here.
I'm full of admiration. Think it is time I got off my but and got exercising again (Herceptin finishes in July). Well done for raising so much for BCC you should be rightly proud of yourself.
Thankyou for your story, thankyou for showing a light at the end of the tunnel. I cannot wait to feel better and challenge myself. Good for you
A fantastic achievement! Well done you!
Such an amazing amount of money raised too. You are indeed a star!
I watched the Marathon this year sobbing throughout as BC stories were told.... This is my first year with BC and the huge number of families especially those with young children I heard about through the event was quite staggering.
I'm sure everyone who knows you is indeed very proud of you.
Hope your muscles are gradually easing....
Best wishes, Welsh girl x
Well done, you should be very proud of yourself. I am hoping to follow in your footsteps in 2012 (to celebrate five years clear I hope), but currently following my LD op two months ago, am struggling to run two miles! So lots of training still needed.
Congratulations - an amazing feat and an incredible amount of money raised.
Now sit down and put your feet up!
(The beer bottle and banana bit really made me laugh!)
I hope this post serves to help people see that there is light at the end of the tunnel. Like everyone on this site I've had a rough couple of years, I was dx Jan 2008,surgery (6 times) chemo, Herceptin, numerous hospital admissions and a trip to the high dependancy unit in-between left me feeling like not only was I hit by a train but dragged along by it too.
However I just ran the London Marathon on Sunday! It took me 4 hours 49 minutes 02 seconds and it hurt like hell and I was a bit disappointed to be beaten to the finish by a beer bottle and a banana!!! however the crowd were amazing and to see my lovely husband and three young children cheering me on along the embankment was the most amazing experience of my life.
I have managed to raise nearly £11,000 for BCC and my choice to run for BCC was totally inspired by the support I have received on this site over the last 2 years. You are an amazing bunch of cyber friends and although I don't post much these days I often still log on for a read if I'm feeling the need. Thank you to the lovely ladies on this site who have sponsored me. My page is still open for 3 months (edited by Moderator. For the web address please private message eal69eal)
In the meantime I am eternally grateful that I managed to get my fitness back to do this and recognise that taking on such a crazy antic is probably not a recommended route to recovery but if it helps just one person on this site who is going through treatment to see that it is possible to get a life back, albeit a bit different from before then all good.
Best wishes xxx
