I am a very proud wife this morning. Yesterday Paul ran the 10k (6.2 miles) run in aid of Cancer Research and raised about £250, the entire event raised £82,500 which was great. It was a hot day and the run which we thought would be a road run, turned out to be cross country one across the beautiful parkland of Ickworth Park, Bury St Edmunds.
He managed to do it in just over an hour, which is fantastic as he only really started training for it about 3 months ago. Miss L had a great time and had even made a special ‘Go Daddy’ sign in his honour.
The runners all seemed to have a good time, but you could tell there was a lot of sadness in the air. People had the reasons they were running on their backs. Most people had things like ‘Grandma’ or ‘Grandad’ which is to be expected. But then there were people with photos of babies and toddlers which was just heartbreaking.
However whilst Paul was running Miss L and wandered about the gardens snapping photos, it really is a gorgeous place
