Scottish Power very kindly sent me the giant green hand - it definitely put a smile on my face after a long Monday! I'll be joining the "High 5 Wave" to help raise £35,000 for Cancer Research UK to continue the charity's incredible research - research that can only carry on with help from donations.
The amazing thing about Race for Life is that there are races going on all over the UK. You can search for your nearest race here and there are options to suit everyone - whether you're an seasoned runner hoping to achieve a PB or if you're never run before and want to take on your first 5k. I'll be hoping to get a decent 10k time as after months of marathon training my speed could definitely do with some work but most of all I'll be hoping to have a fun day while raising awareness for a cause which is close to so many people's hearts. Running for me isn't about being the "best" or the "fastest", it's just about getting out there and achieving something (even if some days that something is just putting on your trainers and making it out the door) and if you can support a worthy cause at the same time then all the better!
