I have so many things to blog about and no motivation to do it while everything is so crazy. Isn’t that always the way though, the real world side of things gets busy so you have more to blog about, but then you don’t have the time to blog about it!
Last weekend, as well as finishing my contract (boo!) my three best friends from home, Helen, Gemma and Rachael made their way down to Bristol to do Race for Life with me. You may have heard me refer to them many times as Four Feet, and I’ve blogged about why we call ourselves that here.
On Saturday last week, I headed over to the hotel where the girls were staying with my own bag so I could sleep over with them. We got ready and headed to the Downs – unsurprisingly, we got more than a few odd looks on the bus since the girls had brown face paint and ears on, and I had a skirt so wide with the petticoats that it was difficult to sit down!
Thankfully, the weather managed to hold off raining for a few hours and I even ended up sunburnt! We were doing the 5k three-legged, which wasn’t the best idea (I still have a major bruise from it!) but got lots of attention – more than the actual costumes did!
We finished the race in 59 minutes – Helen is very insistant that you all know that it wasn’t an hour or more!
There is still lots of time left to sponsor us – we’re still a way off our target, and I’d really love to hit that target.
Thank you feet for coming to Bristol and doing the race with me – I couldn’t have asked for a better Race!
Congratulations Hayley and the rest of the team – 59 min is awesome – especially as you we’re joined at the hop (or foot, as it were) x
