As many of you will know Aaron passed away from SUDEP (Sudden Unexpected Death in Epilepsy) in October 2008. At the time I was extremely overweight, but his death made me look at life in a different way. If my stepson can die at 21 then who knows what is around the corner. I embarked on numerous challenges ranging from short runs through to half marathons and marathons before suddenly realising I have a passion for running much further.

Initially my running was therapy but after joining Royton Road Runners in 2013, it became a way of life which I have continued.

Lakeland 50 for Aaron's 30th

My toughest challenge to date although I did manage it last year so I'm going for it again. The Lakeland 50 is an extremely tough 50 mile ultra marathon through the Lake District with over 10,000 feet of climbing. The route sets off from just past the northern shores of Ullswater and finishes at Coniston. 

This year would have been Aaron's 30th birthday so I thought it was time to raise some funds for SUDEP.
