At the end of June, my sister & I took part in the Race for Life – pretty muddy 5k. I am pleased to say, we raised £740 for Cancer Research – which we are over the moon with!! I was so overwhelmed with the support my sister & I received from all of our friends and family. We completed the run in 42 minutes. It was very challenging and with neither of us being runners, that didn’t help either! But when we crossed the finish line it felt like the world had stopped, I couldn’t believe it. It was such an amazing feeling, especially knowing we had just ran 5k for Cancer Research!
You can probably tell from the race title “pretty muddy” that somehow the run included mud.. And in fact, quite a lot of it too!! But this made it really fun.
One of the best parts about it was doing it with my best friend/little sister, achieving this together and being able to share this experience together.
I would love to do it again next year but I would also like to do the moon walk which is a 26 mile walk in London that you walk during the night!
If you have ever considered joining the Pink Army, I would so recommend it, it’s one of the best feelings saying “I completed the Race for Life” and knowing you have done what you can to help beat cancer!!
