Race For Life 2010!

Ran the Race for Life today for the second time with best friend Kate - we dressed as chefs with checkered aprons, chefs hats and wooden spoons, which promoted many shouts of "What's for dinner?" and "I'll have a cheeseburger please" from the crowd!

We ran it in only 35 minutes last year - unfortunately we turned up late this time and got stuck right at the back behind all of the 'walkers' so spent most of the 5km trying to overtake, taking us almost an hour in total!

Off to reward ourselves now with cocktails and the pub quiz at O Bar!
