My housemate, Jen, has been training for the Race For Life 10km whilst I’ve been training for my half marathon. Saturday I woke up early to go support her down at Clapham Common.
On the bus you could see the distance markers first, and then the cluster of tents and pinkness.
So many people crowded round, having all warmed up together and running for one cause – to kick cancer’s butt!
Everyone was raring to go. I loved the fact there were runners, joggers and walkers – All in their pink wonderful-ness!
Me and my other housemate stood cheering everyone as they took off and also cheered at a couple other points before heading to the finish line. We made sure we spotted Jen at each point too to keep cheering her on!
Jen did amazingly! Not only did she raise so much money for “a life that’s for living, not fighting” (her words, which I think are fab!), she finished with a great time and even said she felt like she could keep going.
It was such a great morning and feeling being there to support so many people, all united, running to raise money for cancer research. Very motivational. Worth getting out of bed for!
