I did the Race for Life 10K last night. I was really nervous beforehand, but it was great. Set off too fast with the herds but slowed down after first K. Was quite emotional as I was running in memory of my mum who lost her battle against cancer. I think she lifted me along the last 2K! It was a 2 lap course so very hard hearing people say nearly there when they were just about to finish the 5K, knowing I had to do it again. Stinky hill that had to be tackled twice. Time was 1 hr 20 mins.
BUT amazing achievement for me and feeling very proud. I did not stop to walk at all and my sponsorship is over £400 now. My little girl was waiting at the end with some good friends, my partner also at the finish line, so it was a great finish. My little girl has also shared at school today how proud she is of her mummy.
Good result and I thoroughly enjoyed my sports massage tonight!
Half marathon next?
