A HEROIC mother from Windsor is running the London Marathon for the third time this year, despite suffering from incurable stage four lung cancer.
Angela Field, 42, of Clewer Hill Road, is running the 26 mile slog in April for the Cancer Treatment Research Trust, having already raised a staggering £20,844 for them two years ago.
Mrs Field said: “I ran the marathon in 2013 because everyone does it once in their life.
“Then I was diagnosed in 2014 and decided to do it again, this time obviously for different reasons.
“I’m not supposed to be able to do it now I have this horrible disease, but I want to do to show that it doesn’t stop me doing anything.
“I have chemotherapy every three weeks, so I have to fit my training around that, but it’s going okay.”
Mrs Field has already completed the race since her diagnosis, but has her eye on a better performance on what she swears will be her final marathon.
She said: “In 2015 I couldn’t run it I had to walk it because I wasn’t well enough at the time.
“I have to run it this time and if I do myself justice then that’s it, no more.”
So far this year Mrs Field has raised over £3,000 and is aiming for a target of £5,000.
