Hi my name is Lisa. I'm 30 years old and live in Whittlesey. When I was 29 I was diagnosed with Arthritis. I was in a lot of pain and felt like my fairly active life was over. I can remember the doctor obviously sensing how worried about this I was with young kids to look after saying - "I've got people on my books that do regular marathons with their arthritis, don't worry" at the time i thought no way. But as soon as he was proved right and I'm now classed as in remission I decided that I would give running a go to try to lose a few lbs and get fitter. I downloaded the c25k app and started. That was about a year ago now and although I'm not a pro by a long shot I'm proud that I'm still doing it 😀

Event details

Perkins Great Eastern Run

The Perkins Great Eastern run is one of the fastest growing half marathons in the country. It starts and ends at The Embankment Peterborough. This is going to be a challenge for me but I'm hoping to complete it in around 2 hours 30 minutes. As well as it being a challenge I'm hoping to raise some money for NGNPUK which is a local charity who raise money to provide the town and surrounding areas with Syringe Drivers to help administer pain relief for paliative care.
