A Brechin woman who was too ill to watch her friend take part in last year’s Simplyhealth Great Aberdeen Run is to tackle this year’s event after recovering from breast cancer.
Lisa Dallas, 49, was in the middle of a four-month period of chemotherapy when last year’s inaugural event took place and she was unable to make the trip to Aberdeen. She vowed at that time to get herself into shape, not to spectate, but to run in the 10km – and that’s exactly what she will be doing on Sunday August 26.
Lisa (pictured), who is a senior lawyer with Angus Council, said: “My friend Heather cajoled me to get out walking and running during my treatment.
“I made a pledge to myself that I would get fit enough to run in the 10km in 2018. That was my big target.”
