Started running Sept 2013 just so I could do 1 ml childrens cancer run with 3 yr old grandson Brody. Didn't get off to best start as my tummy started playing silly bu**ers yesterday and Brody is in middle of course of Grumpy medicine (steroids) Anyway sun was shining and got to start still not sure if the wee man was going to do it or not They started the countdown -he started to smile and we were off Yea!! His 5yr old sister Jessie super speedy so didn't see her after about 30 secs. I found the pace really hard as I take wee while to get going but 1/2way round got couple of mins breather as Brody suddenly stopped and said his legs couldn't work But his dad showed him how to jump in huge puddles and soak his grandma Rona . He thought that was funniest thing and off we went again via every muddy puddle he could find When we saw the finish he let go of us and SPRINTED to end . Really emotional but just fabulous. Then went off by myself and did the family 5mile run I have never ever seen mud like it but absolutely LOVED it Got my first ever medal and training tips from Brody so I can run as fast as him next time Me and the grandchildren jumped in really deep puddles all way back to the car - well you are only young once!
