Wk5 run3 I did it!!!!!!

I managed it. My first "Race for Life" and wk5 run3 done successfully. I completed it in a respectable time (for me) 40 minutes (don't laugh graduates). It was good fun in the park with everyone. But one moving bit was when the guy with the mike asked a little girl "who are you doing the run for"? and she said ME. She has been undergoing Chemo for two years for a brain tumour and she was doing the race. I think everyone had a lump in their throat and a little tear. For everyone who is just about to do wk5 run3 you CAN do it believe in the programme. Good luck.
