Race For Life

Today is a really exciting day because me and my little cousin Alex are going to be doing a 5K run for Race for Life.
If any of you don't know what Race for Life is, it's a brilliant charity fighting to beat cancers but, woman from all over the country come today to do either 5K or a 10K run to raise money for the charity. 
Ever since I was a little girl I've always wanted to do it and now finally i'm going to be doing it today!

We were all set, wearing lots and lots of pink!!!!

I can't even put into words how grateful I am to have had the most amazing family supporting us!

So Me and Alex said our goodbyes to our families and got ready at the Start line, I had no idea that there would be so many people (there was around 15,000 ladies at the 5K race today), It was amazing to see so many people at this amazing event! The buzzer went, the music started playing and off we went!

Everyone who was running in the race had a little note at that back of there tops saying who they were running for, I wrote my Nanny and Nana as they both died of cancer and thought of them the whole way threw the race.


We Managed to do 5K in just less than a hour, I don't know how I could of done it without my little princess. She was absolutely amazing! We both found it really hard but kept supporting each other and kept telling eachother to go go go and finally we saw the finish line, I can't even explain the termination I had to finish the race. On the left before we past the finishing line we could see our families smiling and rooting us which was great support that i'm so grateful for! 

Now to celebrate!!

So after my legs nearly falling off we thought a picnic would be perfect so we got our blankets and food out and started nibbling away!

I just wanted to say a MASSIVE MASSIVE MASSIVE Thank you to everyone that sponsored me and Alex and supported us threw the run. Me and Alex are so so grateful and happy to have so many amazing people surrounding and supporting us. We couldn't of done it without you all.

Overall me and Alex raised around £200!!! 

If anyone is considering doing Race for Life I would Go for it, It's an amazing experience and lots of fun and a great cause.

Love Alice x
