Race for life 2011

Posted on

This morning I took part in my 4th ‘Race for Life’ – a 5km run to help raise money for cancer research. There was a huge turnout of approx 2000 runners and as usual the sun was shining brightly! I used to run several times a week before being a Mum, but these days, as soon little one is tucked up in bed at 7pm I tend to catch up on the last of the housework and then flop and relax for the evening, I managed to get around the course in 29 mins – my slowest yet! – that will teach me for being lazy with the running. It’s always so touching to read the things that people have written on their backs as you run past, I attended the funeral of my husband’s grandmother on Friday who also had cancer and she was in my thoughts as I ran the course. So far I’ve raised over 1000 pounds, and I’m looking forward to next years’ event already.

Don’t forget to head over to ‘Handmade Monday’ – I’ve been spending too much time out in the sunshine to make anything over the past few days, though looks like rain is coming our way very soon so will have something by the end of the week!
