Pretty Muddy

Race For Life | Pretty Muddy 2015

So at the weekend the moment finally came for me to head to Finsbury Park , London, join the #PinkArmy and run 5K for Cancer Research's Race For Life Series, Pretty Muddy.

The clue was in the title but 3K into this pink obstacle course I was wondering where this mud was. It soon came in abundance.

Mud slides, pools of muddy water, tunnels leading to more (you guessed it) mud and even having a group of unsuspecting "helpers" shovel mud onto us, meant that the mud was completely unavoidable.

It was lots of fun though. A well sign posted obstacle course, around a beautiful park and so naturally,  I was delighted to be getting muddy for money, helping to raise cash for Cancer Research the only way I know how; running about!

There's still plenty of time for you to donate or sign up to a race near you so join in if you dare. You'll get a pretty medal to go with your pretty muddy hand and well deserved it shall be too.

Lots of earthy love,



My Adrenaline Rush Challenge For Macmillan Cancer Support

I'm excited to announce that on May 30th, I will be taking part in Adrenaline Rush, a 10K obstacle course in London. I've done a muddy obstacle course before but this looks like it will offer a whole new level of chafing and soggy socks. As well as running over 6 miles, I'll be tackling man made hurdles that include hot stones, freezing water, floor bombs, bungee jumps and mud pits. Jeeze! I'll even be enduring trenches, water chutes and many more hellish hinders alongside my two fit friends, Zanna Van Dijk and Hazel Wallace. Together we will tackle that course in order to raise money and awareness for Macmillan Cancer Support.

As well as helping with the medical needs of people affected by cancer, Macmillan Cancer Support also helps with the emotional impact that cancer has, giving people the energy and inspiration to take back control of their lives. For that reason, I'm a) More than happy to adopt a sweaty demeanour and a few blisters and b) Asking you to get involved by digging deep and chucking a quid my way on the joint Just Giving Page with Zanna Van Dijk please (and pretty please)?
