Pretty Muddy!

The day finally arrived for me, my sister and our friends to take part in the Pretty Muddy Race for Life for Cancer Research UK. 

The four of us dressed up as superheroes and called our team ‘The Lady Mucks’. 

This is the third year we have taken part and it was by far the coldest it has ever been! In previous years we even caught a sunburn! But today it was cold and windy, so by the end we were all shivering!

We set off in high spirits, looking pretty in pink. I love the atmosphere at the start line. Everyone is ready to go, the music is blaring and it’s easy to get caught up in the happiness. We began the race with a jog but we soon slowed to a walk, so we could walk and talk between the obstacles. 

And there were plenty of them! From bouncing on a space hopper (or falling off a space hopper like I did!), crawling under muddy netting or trudging through muddy puddles, there was a lot going on! And as usual, there were the helpful marshals spraying us with cold water as we attempted each one!

It took us just over an hour but we completed the 5K course! Altogether we raised £215.75 (including gift aid) for Cancer Research, which will hopefully bring us closer to finding the cure. 

I now have a slightly-muddy medal to remember the day!

That’s about it for this blog. Follow me on twitter @HollyRobiin for more updates 🙂
