Each month we send out a newsletter to our subscribers. We always feature an inspirational success story: this could be someone that has turned their life around to reduce their cancer risk; who has screened for cancer, caught it and beat it; or kicked a bad habit, like smoking.
This month Pip shared her story about losing her mother to cancer and how this inspired her to take up running. She has now taken part in over 20 fun runs and has climbed one of the world's tallest mountains.
You can read the full story here. But here is a sneak-peak:
"Two years after Mum died I was driving past the Tan track in Melbourne and I saw a group of people taking part in a fun run. It was Mother's Day - which had become a really difficult time - as soon as I saw the runners I realised this was something I could do on Mother's day to celebrate my Mum and her love of running."
Pip's top tip for people keen to start running was to get good running shoes. She recommended Shoe Logic as a great place to get runners in Melbourne and they gave us some vouchers to giveaway to our blog fans!
For your chance to win tell us what inspires you to exercise by posting a response on the blog. You can tell us on Facebook, and via Twitter @CancerVic using #motive2move too.
