Race for Life

July 3, 2006

On Saturday afternoon I took part in the Race for Life at Stanmer park. Unfortunately we are in the middle of a heatwave at the moment so it was 30 oC + out there and I do not cope well with either heat or sun. I still managed to run almost half of it, and with the thousands of people that were there you couldn’t go that fast. G#2 had to pull out due to health reasons at the last minute but Dawnie and G#1 managed to get round in 38 minutes. I was behind them at 46 but I was still so proud of myself when I finished. And I got a medal. I have never had a medal before in my life.

I raised £257.75 in total which is just amazing and if you add the gift aid to that it makes almost £300. Fabulous.

my hair looks horrible in the photo but it is all stuffed up inside a cap! More photos should follow – I took my camera but the batteries were flat. Gra was there with his camera so he has promised me a set when he gets a chance.

    Well done!!!!

    Running in that kind of heat is horrible. I did a 6km run in simular heat once. I actually thought I was going to die. Well done, you stuck to it, you got to the end. You should be dead proud!

    Excellent. Not only for running but the reason behind doing it. You are amazing.
