Well....I did it!!!
Thank you so much to everyone for all their encouragement and sponsorship. As you can see, between you all, you have managed to raise well over my target.. and I am so chuffed - and a wee bit emotional about the whole thing.
I had a great day in Hyde Park - the sun was scorching, so I was sweating like a beast before the race even began. We had a great warm up session with Capital Radio before hand, so my step-touch, leg curl and shoulder raises learned at the gym really came in handy!
The race kicked off some time after 10.30am, but with 22,000 other women taking part, it was a good half hour or so before we even got to the start line, in fact all the "proper" runners had already finished by the time we got to start.
My friends Krista and Claire and myself did a steady jog, walk, jog round the track and finished in 35 minutes, without a cream bun, fag or gin and bitter lemon to keep me going! And I've even got a medal to prove it - should anyone doubt that I was there.....here is a picture of Krista and I!
Again, thank you so much to everyone who helped me achieve my goal to raise money towards Macmillan Cancer Relief - a charity very very close to my heart.
With love and thanks
