Yes, I did it. I ran the Race for Life in Crawley on 11 July 2007, finishing the 5km hilly course in 28 minutes which was a personal best. I never thought I'd see the day but, having lost nearly 5 stone at the end of last year, I was in the best shape ever to start training and to run the event. It was a great atmosphere and it was also great to run it with my friend, Anna, who encouraged me all the way round. And the other great thing? I raised £400 for Cancer Relief UK.
I'm the one on the far left in black, about 5 metres from the finish line.
