On Saturday, I took part in one of the ‘Race for Life’ events in Oxford. Many thanks to everyone who sponsored me and SueC.
After all the rain we’ve had, it was great have have a sunny day – with a cooling wind. The race took place in The University Parks – so here is a gratuitous shot of Keble.
As this was an event organised for women, by women, there were plenty of bogs.
As I was under the weather earlier this year, the event wasn’t a kick start to motivate me into running again. However, I did jog some of the way (this action shot blurred due to my speed) – and it was a great reminder of why I enjoyed running so much. So, I think it will stand as the START of a new fitness programme.
One of the nicest things about ‘Race for Life’ is it’s inter-generational nature. Lots of families taking part together.
Here I am at the FINISH!
SueC and I show off our medals.
Sadly, I ended up with some HUGE blisters – here is the face of pain!
