Race for Life

You may remember a couple of months ago I raised a sponsorship appeal here for Race for Life. I set myself a goal of raising £500 by June 1st, in time for my race, and I actually managed to raise more than that.  With your help I raised £636.46.

To ensure I could do the race, I started the NHS’s “Couch to 5k” programme on 7th April and on 1st June I ran 5km in 35 minutes among 4500 women and lots of pink. You may think is not a big deal. In fact you may even do better, but for me was definitely a personal best.

I can only leave here a big  THANK YOU to all of you that supported my race. Some photos of the event are here.

Há uns meses atrás fiz aqui um apelo para me apoiarem na “Corrida pela Vida” (contra o cancro). A minha intencao era conseguir angariar £500 até dia 1 de Junho, dia da corrida. Com a vossa ajuda consegui ainda mais, consegui £636.46.

Para ter a certeza que no dia da corrida nao ficava para trás, comecei o programa “Do sofá aos 5km” do servico nacional de saúde (um programa de podcasts em 9 semanas onde uma treinadora nos vai guiando entre corrida e passo até conseguirmos correr meia hora seguida). Comecei este programa dia 7 de Abril e a 1 de Junho corri 5km em 35 minutos no meio de 4500 mulheres e muito cor de rosa.

Deixo aqui um grande OBRIGADA a todos os que me apoiaram nesta corrida. Fotos do evento podem ser vistas aqui.
