Race for Life 2010

A huge huge Thank you to all the lovely kind generous people that sponsored me.

Some who I know and a few who I don’t 🙂 but because of you all

I managed to Raise just over £200 🙂

It was an amazing event with over 8000 women and girls of all ages taking part.

Some ran,some jogged and some walked but we all did it together to raise money for cancer research.

It was a new route this year that started from Parkers piece and took us through the town centre along Kings College through the backs then up the river to Jesus Green.

A fantastic route and one which I hope they keep 🙂

I had set myself a challenge which I thought I was not going to be able to achieve but its amazing what you can do when you try 🙂

I pushed myself hard, right out my comfort zone and ran it in 28.08 🙂

An amazing day and it was so good to have Geoff there, who had delayed his flight to France so he could stay and take some photos.

Race for Life

Thanks to some total random stranger.

Who donated £20 to my Race for Life sponsorship.

I have now reached my goal of £100 🙂

As its still 4 weeks till my Race for Life event, I think I will set a new goal of £150.

Thanks to all that have sponsored me so far especially the random stranger 🙂

If you would like to sponsor me, you can do it here

As for my other goal, of running the 5k in 30 mins.

Well we shall just have to wait and see 🙂

A Good exchange

I don’t usually give links out to blogs that I do not read.

But there is always an exception !

So here is a link for Ian who kindly sponsored me £20 in return for the link.

This has boosted my Race for life Sponsorship to £40 🙂

I am still hoping to reach that £100 so if you feel like sponsoring me then click on the Race for Life link in my side bar.

Many thanks also to Jenny and Tessa 🙂

Race for Life

My Race for life Paperwork arrived in the post today.

I am number 1782 and as I work for Tesco, the leading sponsor, I also get a nice pink T-shirt 🙂

Today’s 4 mile run was very enjoyable.

I am not really built for speed but do enjoy the longer distance.

Although my time for my 4 mile run has gone from 45.53 to 43.21 so feeling rather pleased with myself 🙂

Don’t forget you can sponsor me by clicking the link on my web page

Race for Life

In 1997 I did my first Race for life, it was a small affair compared to today’s events.

Since then I have dipped in and out of them, 2004 being the last time I did one.

For some unknown reason I have decided to enter it again this year.

Maybe its just to prove to myself that I can still do it or maybe I just want a little challenge

At the moment there will be three of us doing it, in Cambridge on 4th July.

Of course I will want to run it as fast as I can.

I would like to think I could do it in 30 mins but in reality it will be more like 35mins.

If you would like to sponsor me please click on the Race for life widget over in my side bar 🙂

Even better why not join us 🙂

Below are some of my medals from previous years.
