#PinkArmy ~ Race for Life 2016


~ Race for Life 2016 ~
 

So, yay I did it! - I managed to complete the Race for Life in 34minutes and 40seconds (well technically 39 seconds but whatever) I ran the majority of the 5k and to be honest I have never surprised myself so much haha! The event was held yesterday, the 20th, in a town not too far from me and it was the first time me doing it in about 5 years. If I'm honest, its one of those events that's it both heart-warming and extremely sad at the same time, seeing people with tributes to loved ones lost, pinned to their t-shirt makes my heart bleed. I was running in memory of my Taid (read: granddad) who passed away around 2 years ago of cancer, so I'd love to think he was looking down at me, proud, throughout the run.

I'm so happy I took part because its such a good cause and really pushes you at the same time! - I've ~kind of~ been training for the 5k for the past few months, but I've never done the whole distance. Although I didn't manage to run it all (I did stop here and there to get my breath!) its still the furthest I've ran in a very long time and has actually reminded me how much I enjoy outdoor running - hopefully this will spur me on to go for jogs of an evening more, hopefully!
 
Anyway, here's to a great cause and I'll definitely be back for Race for Life 2017!
