As you know if you were here at New Year, I made a number of sporting challenge resolutions for myself this year. The first, the Comic Relief Sport Relief run was today. I did it with my sister Caroline, (with the short hair) and my friend Michelle. We have all been training for it, but I was nervous as it was my first ever run in public at a running event! I woke up this morning to howling winds and lashing rains, and half hoped it might be cancelled. But it wasn't!
Here is us before running
OMG, though, it was FREEZING!
Any of you living in a lovely hot place, take pity on me, check out the waterlogged ground...it was DANGEROUS!!!!!!!
And here we are afterwards..
No, I didn't carry that plastic bag round the course!
We are very proud of ourselves, not least because we managed to raise over £300 between us for a very good cause. (no, not shoes!!)
The next thing we are training for is the Race for Life in June, which is women only running to raise money for breast cancer research, which we shall be running in memory of our mum, who would have thought we were completely mad!!!
Now I think I deserve to sit in front of the tv for a few hours and knit my BTSV and watch some trash!!!!!
