Training for Race for Life

I am getting quite excited now. I love my Army tags. 🙂



As you may have read, I am taking part in Race for Life.

You can read all about why I’m doing so here.

Now, if you really know me well, you’ll know I don’t do walking. I’m more of a travel-by-car-girl. Or bus. Or anything on wheels. Not a bicycle though.

So, walking even 5K is big for me. But I am determined to do it.

I do the school run 3 times a day and in order to prepare for the big day I have been power walking when not with the kids. (I do some power walking with the kids too – when we are running late!!). When I first began, I came home huffing and puffing like I had run a marathon.

Now as the days go by, it’s getting easier. I am confident that 5K will not be an issue.

It also makes me feel more energetic throughout the day.

I am also looking at going to the gym and getting fit not only for this run but also for my own personal well being.

I was also sent a box that have lots of healthy snacks to munch on when I am peckish.



Jadyn is also training to go on the walk with me. She reminds me to go out with her for a brisk walk on the weekend. Yes, I tend to forget. 😉

My daughter keeps saying – we don’t want to come last. I tell her it’s all about taking part.

If you would like to take part you can visit the Race for Life page, find a venue near you and take part. If you are still among the first 20 readers, you can use the code RFLJAC to get a £2 discount.

And talking about taking part – my Just Giving page is looking rather sad right now.

I would be thrilled if you could make a donation, however small, and help me to reach my target. Every little counts. Remember, all the money donated goes to Cancer Research.

And if you are anywhere near Richmond on the 7th June, do come and cheer me on.
