This was probably one of my proudest moments, albeit it not much of an achievement for some it meant the world to me. Not only have I been through more heartache and tragedy in the last year than most people experience in a lifetime, but I ran a 3 mile obstacle course in 30 minutes (says the girl who couldn't run 1 minute down the road without needing her asthma pump only a few months ago). Race for Life is a fantastic event to help raise money for Cancer Research and they don't do things by half - from heart FM on hand to get you pumped with aerobics to the volunteers around the course cheering you on (or throwing mud at you!) it was an amazing day which made me realise how lucky we are to be alive. Things were really put into perspective when you see stamped on a ladies back under 'I race for..' and it says 'me'. At times I felt completely enveloped by sadness but I pushed through and I realised what good I was doing and who I was doing it for. Auntie Christine, Uncle Michael and my two amazing Grandads, this was for you. I miss you more than you could ever imagine and I still don't know how we all wake up everyday and carry on without you here. This is for everyone suffering from Cancer or suffering for someone with Cancer, this is for all of us who may get Cancer one day and to the hope that when or if that day comes there will be a cure.
TOGETHER WE CAN BEAT CANCER!!!!
