Racing and walking...


Yes, it was the Race for Life here in London a couple of weekends ago now but I had signed up to do it together with two friends.  We opted for the Regents Park Race and it was a glorious day with bright sunshine but also a cool breeze.  There was a fantastic atmosphere and around 5,000 women took part.  I  did it in memory of my lovely soul friend Margaret who died last year.  It was quite emotional seeing everyone with either pictures or names on their backs showing the people they were running/walking in memory of.  In the end we did a brisk walk around the 5km as one of my friends cannot run at the moment.  It was a great time and we are signing up for next year too.  If you haven't already tried it you may want to look into it.  5km is not at all far and many people do twice that amount walking their dogs twice a day but it is good to start off small and work up to more!  I'm already looking at the 10k run in central London all around the historic places  but it will be 2011 as this year is already booked up.
