My daughter Kathryn organised a team to enter the 24 hour walk for life. As I am a survivor of Breast Cancer I was on board with out a second thought.
It took place this weekend ... the sun shone beautifully all weekend .
We did it ...8 of us walked with 2 walkers on the track every minute of 22 hours just about ... I did 3 hours during the night with 2 x 2 hour breaks ... and of course half hour stints during day light hours.. feeling good .. only ouch !! heel numb on left foot so far .... wonder what tomorrow will bring .... Here is Kathryn and Mhairi with our amazing banner for Relay For Life
Family affair ... the name came because Grandad Breadmore died of Cancer... my husband had prostate cancer and of course myself with Breast Cancer ... the following is Kathryn's comment on Facebook I think she puts it wonderfully...
Kathryn's message ......Happy tired, sun kissed, muscles ache and amazing achievement running through my body after 22 hours at Relay For Life. So proud of my team and all the effort they put in, the laughter and the enthusiasm. Way to go "Family Affair" we rock! Pedometer says we walked about 130,000 steps between us which is approx 90km
Maybe see some of you next year
Even my 2 grandsons 10yrs and 8yrs walk ... well done Ben and Alex.
