Race for life

Everyone thought I was mad when I announced I was doing a fun run at 7 1/2 months pregnant but it was only 5k and I walk that at least once a week with the dog! I prepared a novelty costume (ofc!) and signed up a couple of gullible folks to tag along and boy did we have a good time! Thousands of women dressed in pink and silly clothes to walk jog or run 5 or 10k, there were pyjamas, lots of tutus and even a bumble bee : D Lots of people had memorials on their backs, my granddad was only 46 when he died of lung cancer and my father-in-law beat stomach cancer back in 2005, 1 in 5 of us will be directly effected by cancer in our lives.

I raised £200 from my sponsors and everyone loved my oven, although some people didn't get it at first, thinking I was a robot or just a pink box lol I'm glad I went, I had such good fun at the Race for life 5k event in North Weald, Epping. the local newspapers took plenty of photos and Heart Essex were there too, Sue from the breakfast show said my costume was the best one she had seen all year and that is saying something as she has been at over 40 events this summer!
