Today I took part in the Race for Life for the fourth year in a row. Each year, hundreds of thousands of women from across the UK take part in the Race for Life to help Cancer Research UK raise money to save lives and help beat cancer. The Race for Life is a rewarding and emotional experience as women are encouraged to dedicate their races to friends and loved ones who are fighting or have lost the fight against cancer. I dedicate my race to my father each year as he beat cancer and was given the all clear about four years ago.
I took a couple of snapshots along the way but was having far too much fun chatting to my South African friend Kathy to take too many more! Please see the bottom of the post to see about sponsoring me and getting free advertising on my blog until the end of July.

Dinosaurs in Crystal Palace Park!
The finish line!!! If you are wondering whether we had to walk in the rain, the answer is ‘yes’! Thankfully I had my pink and black polka dot umbrella.
