All About Racing for Life....

Cyberkitten photographed some of the essence of Race for Life....
Arriving at the venue - Lydiard Park, just outside Swindon...
3,000 women gathered, with husbands and families......spot cq!
The cadets were there to help out - dish out water, watch the course and dole out medals.
There were Faeries..........
and Runaway Brides.....
It is a time to remember....
loved ones.......
People we love and admire...
The course can be run..........
...or walked......
Open to anyone - as long as they are female.....
At the venue, there was a wall to post our thoughts, memories and loved ones.......
Hot and bothered........But I did it.......!

Congratulations!!! I'm starting to loose weight so I'm hoping that I can do something like that next year.

I liked the pic of the mom with her two young daughters the best!

Wow, such a photogenic and purposeful event. What a great mix. I'm proud of everyone who participated.

Michele would be too.

Gives you a thumbs up, congrats..
It's hard to right much more than that really it is, I know the pain of loss to cancer, pancreatic at that..
It's not nice at the end..

Hi CQ!
Congratulations on doing the race for life!

I thought about doing it but to tell you the truth I am way way way too overweight to be able to do that. :-(

I did walk 9 miles the other week though for a sponsered walk!

My blog is back. :-)
