Running buddy trip!

So just finished my w5r3 and thinking I should do it again. My little 9 yr old daughter joined in (faster than me on the runs/slower on the walks), as she does roughly every other run. Half way through she fell over, so ended up jogging up on the spot for a minute or so persuading a wailing child to carry on (mean mummy!). We went very slowly from then on - but did run, with me telling her how brave and what a good athlete she was - to which she replied that it's only footballers who throw themselves to the ground and writhe in agony - ha ha! Perceptive child 😉. Covered far less ground than r2 when I checked distance at the end and definitely found it easier probably due to interruptions, so maybe repeat this one? 3 weeks to go until Race for Life!

Well done, you've done it so there's no need to do it again. And that jogging on the spot still counts!

You did the run! Doesn't matter what the circumstances were. You ran for the whole time! I think it's great you're doing it with your daughter! Lovely for her to see you out achieving so much.
