Kim’s half marathon
I wanted to do something positive and I found that running was a good way to feel better both physically and mentally.
I decided to raise money for the Miscarriage Association after having a missed miscarriage at 12 weeks in December 2017. I have a fantastic 2 year old boy, but it was still devastating to lose a much wanted second baby.
The hospital were great in terms of medical care, but I found that they were quite lacking in any emotional support; the Miscarriage Association provided me with lots of useful information to understand what was happening and to understand that the grieving process was very normal.
I wanted to do something positive and I found that running was a good way to feel better both physically and mentally, and raising money for the Miscarriage Association was an obvious must. I ran the Worcester Half Marathon in May, raising £402.50. The 13 miles were physically and emotionally exhausting.
I am so grateful to all my friends and family that sponsored me and I am pleased to report that I am expecting a baby in February 2019.
