To all you runners or fitness gurus out there 5k sounds easy. Not to me, unfit, overweight and out of breath. But I wasn’t going to let this little walk in the park beat me. In fact a beautiful walk in Hyde Park central London on a sunny summers day with thousands of other women or all shapes sizes fitness levels and nationalities.
Raising money for a cancer charity, great fun, team work, pinkness (if there is such a word!) And women in all their glory.
What a day, a big achievement for so many of us who know and love people who have fought the C word, many living to fight another day. Some dear friends and loved ones not so lucky. My 5k was nothing to their journey.
Don’t thank me, don’t tell me I’ve done a good thing, it was nothing compared to your courage and determination. You know who you are!
I’m looking forward to next years challenge. 10k perhaps. Yes – why not!!
