Regular readers may have gathered that I am not the biggest fan of exercise and struggle to motivate myself. When Cancer Research UK first contacted me asking if I would like to be part of the 2015 Race for Life Blogger Team I declined, using the fact that I hadn’t long given birth as an excuse, I am the Queen of excuses. After thinking about it for a while I decided that this was not a valid excuse, in fact, if anything, it was a reason for me to take part, that and the fact that it is for an amazingly good cause. I last took part in my local 5K Race for Life in 2010 with Curves, I had a fantastic day and managed to raise an amazing £195 for Cancer Research, if I can raise half of that amount again I will be more than happy.
I initially decided to sign up to the Pretty Muddy 5K in Cardiff as it sounds like great fun and I imagine that it will be quite revitalising, I then learnt that you can take pushchairs along to the standard walking/running events so opted to do the more tame 5K in Cwmbran on 21 June 2015 with Aria.
If you would like to join in with the fun and the fundraising this year you can get £2 off the entry fee with the code RFLslice here, this discount does only apply to the first twenty people clicking through so be quick!
Aria and I will be donning pink and partaking in Race For Life, Cwmbran on 21 June 2015, I would be very grateful if you could sponsor me, big or small donations, every little really does count.
