Race for Life - Cancer Research Update

Hello ladies, sorry for my absence this week but I have been mega busy, but not doing anything interesting worse luck. I have been keeping to my 30 for 30 items though and I shall do a bumper catch up this week for you all.
First of all though I'd like to show you the cute colour swap parcel I got off Laurie, thank you so much Laurie I love my funky purple pens and my sweeties! And I would like to thank Nicole for setting up the great colour swap, it was great fun.
Now for a Race for Life update. You all know by now that I am running (read walking!) the Race for Life for Cancer Research, well just to let you all know I have now done the Race for Life, YAY!!! I did the 5k in 41mins so feeling kinda happy about that. I also did it in Fancy dress! Looking like this...
Oh yes! Minnie Mouse! It was on my friend Rachels orders that I compete in Fancy dress or she wasn't paying me my sponsorship money! Meanie!
It actually turned out to be great fun running (I actually speed walk quite fast! i.e. faster than most joggers jog!) in a costume as I got lots of comments and encouragement from the crowd. As well as my own bit of commentary on the tannoy system, which was also being aired live on the radio. lol! The DJ announced Minnie Mouse crossing the Start line, the 2k mark and eventually the Finish line, it was really funny. I had to wave at all the press cameras (and random people cameras) as I crossed the finish line so I'm kinda expecting to be in the local paper this week. (If you see me let me know!) There were very few people in full fancy dress this year but lots in pink stuff, tutus, cowboys hats, pink wigs, fairy wings and bras outside their tops.
I wanna say congrats to everyone who took part in Swansea and in all the other events across the UK!
My dedications.
There is still time to sponsor me. If you could just spare £1 it really will make a difference. Go to my sponsorship page to donate online, its safe and easy!

Hopefully a 30 for 30 update tomorrow as well as some great pictures of the Wow Festival down the bay.

  10. Congrats on doing the race! It was my 7th year this year and I decided to do it in a ball dress and heels, just to mix it up a little and it was in memory of my, would've been mother in law.
