A nurse at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH) is getting set to run the London Marathon for the hospital charity's VOiCE fund.
Caroline Tayler will take on the challenge on April 22, and she has been running for more than 36 years.
Her love of running has taken her to races all over the world. She said: 'My favourite marathon is the Big Sur in California – it is such a tough, hilly course but very beautiful with the ocean mostly in view and such stunning scenery you almost forget how tough it is.
'My training is going very well. I throw in a few cross country races and beach runs into the training plan, just to mix it up a bit, but most important is the long run of 15 miles or more every week from now on until the race.
'I have done 16 marathons and every time I say 'that's it' but there's always another.'
VOiCE supports local women going through or having experienced any gynaecological cancers, including vulval, ovarian, cervical and endometrial cancers.
Ms Tayler said: 'I work within our very caring gynae outpatients department and have witnessed first hand the crushing blow when such awful news is given to some of our ladies.'
