National Lottery Anniversary Run

Hey all! As its still a tad quiet inbetween Mollie posting bikini pictures and Frankie’s baby shower, I’d thought I’d update you all on a little run me and Rosie did yesterday.

We both took part in the National Lottery Anniversary Run, which was the first official event to take place inside the London 2012 Olympic Stadium since the end of the Olympics last year. The run was 5 miles (8Km) around the London 2012 Olympic Site, finishing inside the Stadium in front of 20,000 odd people (and Little Mix!)

We both decided to run for two charities, one that you all know well – Dyslexia Action – and the Dyspraxia Association. On Saturday before the race, Mollie’s Mum, Sue, donated to our race, which was very kind and lovely of her, we thank her again on the site for her generosity.

We both completed the race in just under 1Hour 14mins. Which meant we ran each mile in just under 15mins – in the heat in central London – which although we both admit isn’t a staggering pace – this wasn’t a race about setting personal bests – although this is for both of us as its our first 5mile race – it was about raising money and awareness for charity! Hopefully we can both get an entry for the 2014 race and aim to finish under one hour.

To date we have raised £193! You can still donate online via JustGiving – if you can spare a couple of pounds, of even £1 we will be very grateful. You can donate no-matter where you live or what your currency is!
