This morning I ran my first ever race. A 5k Race for Life with Cancer Research. My sister and I ran together and managed not only to raise nearly £300 for Cancer Research, but to run the full 5k in 33:59. This isn't the fastest time ever but I am very happy with it - my sister had hurt her knee and we thought we might have to walk it.
Thank you to everyone who sponsored us. It really motivates you to know that we are helping such a worth while charity while doing something we love.
I really enjoyed it and can't wait to run my next race. This time for the love of racing rather than for charity.
