A Morecambe Sainsbury’s worker will step away from the food counter to run the Great North Run this weekend.
Angela Prince, 34, decided to take part in the half marathon on September 7 to raise money for Breast Cancer Care.
The motivation to take part came about when Angela, also a marital arts instructor at John Ward School Of Korean Martial Arts, Morecambe, failed one of her tests at the class in 2011.
Although already fit, the mother of two wanted to concentrate more on running, and has so far raised £370 for a charity that is close to her family.
Angela said: “I signed up for breast cancer care, my mother and grandmother overcame breast cancer so it means a lot to the family.
“I feel confident I have been training a lot, everyone has probably seen me running all over the promenade and Heysham Road!”
Angela is a well known face in the Morecambe store as she has worked there since it opened four years ago.
Most of the money raised has been from customers who want to see her do well.
She said: “Quite a lot of customers have supported and raised money for me which is nice of them. I am scared of it in a way but I am trying to raise £500 in total.”
