I was really looking forward to doing this today despite wind and rain !
What an atmosphere! I have always been a bit cynical about the mass of pink / tutus etc but it was so friendly and I was choked up most of the time with all the personal stories. Running for my dad who sadly died from cancer 5 years ago , but also as a celebration of my being 4 years now post breast cancer treatment. This was a personal thank you for all those around me who have supported me and also a celebration of running and couch to 5k too!
I was in the first few "grown up" runners at the start and started off too quickly, and had to walk a minute half way through..not knowing the route was uphill initially...finished in 28 minutes, so chuffed! 10k race now in September and now seems realisable! Thank you all for your on-line inspiration and stories as that is a big part of what what pushed me on with this running malarkey!! !
