    Having completed the 5k Race for Life Sally and I thought we'd keep it up. She walked it a few days ago and managed it in 46 minutes...crazy huh?

    We both did it tonight, my legs and butt are really sore now! I almost stopped a few times but she made me keep going, it seemed so much more difficult than on the R4L day.

    Anyway, we did it in 52 mins and 43 secs, my time on the actual day was 57 minutes so I'm happy with that but oh boy, it was so tough tonight!

    Well done you!

    I've got my Race For Life on Sunday, couldn't get anyone to do it with me though but am still looking forward to it. The atmosphere is always great :)

    Good for you Mairead, it's always harder the next time or two!! That's what I would tell my Cross Country team anyway!!! Thats a good starting time, if you do it at least twice a week your time will really improve. Good going!!!

    Thanks everyone! Good luck with yours Lisa

    I do indeed have proper footwear, they're designed for walking and I used to use them when I walked every day a few years back. I know I can do it 'cos I did then, it's just that it's been quite a while since...!

    Well done so you're getting quicker, so next year you will whizz round :D

    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.
    Winne the Pooh - A A Milne



    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.
