It was an inspiring (and sunny) 5K along Worthing prom with around 1500 women dressed in pink running for Cancer Research.

There was a SW breeze blowing in our faces as we set off at 11am from Worthing Pier. Sigs was still nursing a sore achilles and I was aware of my heart rate rising too high due to my on going hyperthyroidism. But it isn't the speed that counts for Race For Life, it's the atmosphere. I know we are blessed to be actually able to run while those fighting cancer do not have the choice. 

Sigs and I ran in 24m and 27m respectively, running among the pink tutus, pink tattoos and even pink dyed poodles. We may not have beaten our PBs but let's BEAT CANCER!!!
