Today I did the 5k Race for Life with my mother in law, sister in law & her two daughters. It was Fantastic. this of course has been the first time I have done the event since June 2011, when my son was 5 months old, he will be 3 in September!!! :o
At 11.10am we crossed the starting line & began out 3 mile walk around Temple Newsam..
The atmosphere was just totally amazing & really got our adrenaline pumping!
Over 2,00o women entered the event today & in all honesty I half expected it to be hard work with me skipping out on the event last year, but it really wasn't, I truly believe now that walking & talking can get you somewhere fast! I was that busy gabbin with my mother in law that when we were just about approaching what I thought was the 2k mark it was in actual fact the 3k mark... I had totally missed the 2k mark with chatting so much ;)
At 12.32am me & my mother in law crossed the finishing line together, (my sister in law & her daughter had gone on ahead & finished before us) & my word it truly was an out of this world feeling to cross that finish line!! :D
After we had crossed the finish line we were given our medals & a well earned bottle of water along with a chocolate snack (Mmm) :p we then met up with the rest of the family & ended what had been a truly great day by travelling to Mcdonalds & grab ourselves some well earned late lunch!!
I truly believe that I did something great today & I will continue to fight for a cure for Cancer, but I also ADVOCATE for CHILDHOOD CANCER, which is also another case deeply close to my heart.
