Race for Life

It was Race for Life day for me and Anya today (Tara's little legs wouldn't have got her round the 5k but she might do it next year)

Obligatory 'hold the camera at arms length self portrait'

Anya warming up. We couldn't see the warm up lady on the stage properly so we made up our own moves!

Anya with owl - we had to bring some sort of soft toy with us!

Part way round. As you can see it was gorgeous scenery at Towneley.

This was the first marker sign we saw to show us how far we had gone. One of the ladies to the right of Anya's head is one of her teachers. Hi Mrs G! :)

Only 500m to go! Anya was starving at this point and I had to ration the small pack of biscuits I'd brought!

At the end! Anya doesn't look happy here as she didn't want her photo taken when lots of people were around whooping and cheering!

And the time we did it in - not bad with a 7 year old and an impromptu loo break thrown in!

So far Anya has raised £195 (on and offline) and I have raised £20 - people wanted to sponsor Anya more than me which is fine. I am so proud of her for raising so much money :)

What a great job - you two musy have been exhausted after all that!

Myself and Miss V are signed up to do the one around Plymouth Hoe last month.
Congratulations to you x

Well done to you both!! No pink in our house though (although I do have a pink hat!) although the boys would probably have enjoyed dressing up in pink tu-tu's!!
