By gum, I am v. fat, v. unfit and v. untrained, but managed to complete the Race for Life in Perth on Sunday.
Though I had been warned that it would be an emotional day, I found myself overcome with tears. This was at the beginning as we pushed off; during the walk, while looking at others' back labels; and then at the end when we finally hobbled through the finishing arc.
What a wonderful outing it was. Nanny's best Girl and Lolly Dolly-pop came too and helped, assisted by Mr T and the girls' parents.
I can't thank enough the people who sponsored me - what a wave of good feeling and support it has been.
And, I shall definitely be doing it again next year. And, of course, I shall be thinner and fitter. Like every (next) year.
