On Thursday 18th June 2009 I did something I've never done before. I ran 5km without stopping.
This is something I couldn't of dreamed of this time last year when I was nearly 4 stone heavier. Thanks to Weight Watchers and some determination I did it and I am very, very proud of myself.
I am also very very proud of the other ladies in Wolverhampton (and those all across the country) who have taken part in the Race for Life. I was near enough prepared for the running.
I was not prepared for the emotion of the evening and the heartwrenching messages written on almost everyone's backs. I was holding back the tears for much of the evening. I spent quite a lot of the run behind a lady who had the names and pictures of two of her friends on her back who had not made it... and then underneath was written "and me".
So, if you can spare any money at all. Please sponsor me.
