"Cancer, you stole my Dad, I'm coming to get you!" is the mantra Sarah is using to motivate herself as she starts her training.
"THIS IS A REAL CHALLENGE FOR ME!!!... I'm 43, unfit and overweight. I don't think I've ever even run for a bus! Even at school I made up endless excuses to avoid running. But I've started training and I'm determined I'm going to do it. But let's face it, cancer touches ALL of us in some way... so it's for the long term benefit of you, me and everyone we love." Sarah explains.

The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority has recently undertaken road repairs to a conservation site in Skrinkle Haven near the Pembrokeshire Coast Path National Trail.
National Park Authority Technical Officer Steve Brick said: "The access road is owned by the National Park Authority and we have had requests to improve the road after the past two heavy winters, which have greatly accelerated the erosion to the surface.
On your own or with the family, come to an activity or event in the National Park Authority's great selection taking place in the park or at one of the Authority's sites at Carew Castle and Tidal Mill, Castell Henllys Iron Age Fort or Oriel y Parc Gallery and Visitor Centre.
The Park Authority's Discovery Team have put together over 40 events, including day discovery walks, castle and Iron Age fort activities and bats in palaces, with information now available on a downloadable app.
Two classes from Stackpole VC School have been helping Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority staff to plant a newly created wildflower meadow on the MOD Castlemartin Range.
The Authority's Castlemartin Ranger Lynne Houlston said: "The meadow is near the Castlemartin Camp entrance, and will help to link habitats which are particularly good for butterflies and bumblebees, who really took a battering last year in the long spells of cold and rain.
A forum organised in Pembrokeshire recently by West Wales Action for Mental Health brought a range of organisations together which deliver a recognised therapeutic service, including Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority's successful Walkability project.
The Authority's Walkability Officer, Paul Casson, attended the event and said: "There is now much more acceptance of the benefits of walking from a range of organisations, which is evident with the Authority being invited to speak at this local mental health forum.
The Principality boasts some spectacular beaches and last year 41 beaches and five marinas received the internationally recognised Blue Flag, which is administered in Wales by Keep Wales Tidy. The Lonely Planet travel guide also voted the Welsh coastline as the 'Best Region' on Earth to visit in 2012. Clean Coasts Week gives people the opportunity to give our beaches a spring clean before the busy summer season.
