I cannot believe that 2013 is coming to a close already! It feels like it was just yesterday I was welcoming in this year – but as they say… time flies when you’re having fun!
This year has been so good to me. I’ve done so many amazing things and I feel amazing for it! It was the three year anniversary of my bone marrow transplant this July and it feels so crazy to think that I’ve done things that were completely unimaginable just a few years ago.
This post was inspired by Facebook’s new Year in Review feature which lets you see your 20 biggest moments from the last 12 months and I really enjoyed looking back at everything that I’ve done.
Without further ado let’s have a look at my five favourite memories from 2013:
1. Beating aplastic anaemia
2. Running the British 10k
3. The Purple Tie Dinner and Dance
4. Leaving school
Having aplastic anaemia and being constantly in and out of hospital meant that I missed most of the first three years of secondary school and for a long time I felt like I wasn’t going to ever go back. Fortunately, I managed to get back to school to do my GCSEs and I got a good set of results which I’m really proud of. I do kind of miss it though!

5. Enjoying life
I’ve loved every minute of this year and can’t wait to see what 2014 brings for me. I’m looking forward to running more races, fundraising for even more great charities and of course working really hard on this blog!
