We did it!!!!!!!!!!

I did it, I did the race for life. I even beat last years time. This year I finished in 39 mins. The heat was unbearable! and I ran out of water at the 2 k mark!! But I still enjoyed every second of it. The day is always so emotional and its so sad to see the messages on everyones backs. I ran in memory of my grandads and my cousin who I have sadly lost to cancer, and for my friend from an online forum who died from the dreadful disease.
My mum and her other half came to cheer us on, but missed us running!! They waited to see us but for some reason didnt see us run past them!

I thought you might like to see a couple of photos that my mum kindly took for me.



We looked half decent before the race LOL but that wasnt the case after
This is how we looked after the race
And for those of you that havent sponsored me yet, theres still time to do it online
