Maureen’s Race for Life Success!

I did the race for life on the 3rd of June, as a member of the three degrees team. Alas we were one degree under due to illness. It was a glorious sunny day, thank goodness!

The view a sea of pink against the backdrop of Windsor racecourse., including the pooches The usual motivational warm up, and assembling into our section, one degree with runners the other, yours truly with the walkers

As I walked the course I observed and applauded the youngsters on their run, with sheer determination on their faces. The views were delightful and the marshals were great keeping us motivated and encouraged at the milestone distances. As I reached the sign indicating the 10k and 5k I wondered if my knees could take the plunge next time. With the 500m in sight people steeled themselves towards the finish, as did I spurred on by the music I could hear, I danced and shimmied my way over the line encouraged by my sister, the other degree, and the waiting family and friends of others satisfied with completing in just under the hour.

Everyone does the race for life for their own reasons but one message I saw summed it up for me, ‘the future’

Thank you to all those who donated to the future! I am thrilled to have raised £180 to date.
