So tomorrow marks my first ever 5k, I am a little nervous I'm not going to lie, yes I have been running a few 5ks a week, but I've never been one for doing sport event, but I was asked by the lovely guys at Race For Life to get involved and who could say no to such a good cause. You have already probably heard of Race For Life, its a great event where women run to raise money to fight cancer. I wasn't aware until I signed up that they also do a 10K plus other events like a marathon.
Many of my family members have lost their personal fight with Cancer including both my Grandad, Uncle all my great aunts passed away with Breast cancer including my friends so it is a charity very close to my heart. I think most people have had their lives changed for good by Cancer its a horrible disease, but with people doing things like the 5k Race For Life we can be that little bit closer to finding that much needed cure and supporting the hard work the Cancer Charities do for the people we love. So thats why I am running tomorrow and showing support to my friends Amelia and Jaymie who are also running their own 5k you go girls!!
During my training at the gym I combined the fun training app and training plan that's available on their website. It was so simple and I will be using it to help me with my marathon training (spoilers)
5k is doable for women of all ages and fitness just think walking up and down Southend pier and you've got! There are still plenty of spaces and races going on local to you and all the money raised does go to a fab cause.
