Cancer Research Race For Life 2014.

Race For Life.


Race For Life is the brainchild of CANCER RESEARCH , which, through 5k or 10k runs held throughout the country, raises awareness and money to help with the development of life-saving and life-changing treatments to help beat the awful illness.

Anyone that knows me personally will know that this charity is a subject very close to my heart and family. To catch everyone else up, I lost my mum to lung cancer in 2012.

The Bootcamp I’m part of announced that they were taking part, so I signed up. The last Race For Life I took part in was in 2011, a year before my mum passed away and I walked it. With my dog. This year though, I was running it. A nod to my mum, raising some money for this amazing charity, but also to show myself how far I’ve come through losing my mum and then having a baby.

And I did it. The furthest I’ve ever run. Definitely wasn’t easy, I was glad to see the finish line, but it felt amazing. The crowds cheering and seeing people from Bootcamp cheering and also running helped so much. Three miles and a bit in thirty minutes. I could not be happier. I’m so happy and proud to say I’ve done it.

So here’s to next year and my 28 minutes target!
