Run or Dye

The one where we get covered in paint!

As well as running the ‘She Cracked It’ race, this weekend I also took part in Run or Dye.  The race, organised by Macmillan Cancer support was a 3k fun run through Hawkstone park.  The run was a colour race to celebrate healthiness, happiness, individuality and giving back to the community.

It was still enjoyable but I must admit my breathing has been quite tight since.  I must have inhaled a lot of the powder as I have been coughing a lot – although it was a cold and damp day so that didn’t help either!

The kids all loved the day and I it is one we will certainly look to do again.
