Race for Life (im on day 5 of stop smoking)

Ok, so as an incentive to giving up smoking, I have signed up to do race for life 5k run in June.

I cant run for toffee! mmm toffee (Nooo stop munching!!)

Im very unfit from smoking and nibbling lots the past 5 days. Im hoping this will help me stop smoking for good as I just know i wont be able to run if i carry on smoking!

I have used my stop smoking money to join our local gym! so its all falling into place!

If anyone wants to find out about race for life, just google it and you can find one near you. Or if you would like to sponsor me, justgiving.com/sam-kay1

Im going to need all the help and support I can get so please cheer me on :p
