I wanted to take part in Parallel 2016 because my husband and son have done marathons, half marathons and 10km runs. It was a goal for me and an opportunity to show that there is life after a stroke. I walked using my Nordic pole and husband by my side, just in case I fell. The best bit was the encouragement and cheers as I reached the line, I was in tears.
As a family, we’re all hoping to do it this year, possibly my hubbie pushing me for 10km.
