June means half way through the year for my 1000 miles challenge, but I haven’t yet hit half way in the number of miles I have done. This month I hit 77, which means me with 623 to go by the end of the year. Not quite on target, but I have loads coming up in July, August and September 2017 to make it up! I’m slightly getting worried about how much I have left to do, but it’s been great having people tell me I can do it.
What I got up to in June, the best way to see what we did is watch we did. Links to videos is included!
Pretty Muddy 5K
Pretty Muddy 5K happened on the 3.6.17, this was the first fundraising race our charity ever did last year. This time we had grown from a team of 3 to 8. I love this race, as it is about supporting each other and remembering people we have lost to cancer. The start was emotional, as we wrote why we were running, remembered why we were all here and then pinned our “why we are running” to the start line to share with others. It made me think about this is why our charity began and how important it is to help support others.
I had promised everyone who was running, that it wasn’t that muddy last year so you will be fine. However, the race organisers from last year seemed to realise last year was not muddy enough. It was the complete opposite, we were coated! I’m sure the others thought I was lying about last year! It was great fun. Lots of obstacles thrown in, with plenty of mud and water. It was nice to see people running, walking and supporting friends and strangers round the course. We spent most of our time laughing!
Great way to spend a Saturday morning and will definitely be doing it again next year.

I love this race. Having done Spring Wolf, I was looking forward to Summer Wolf in a different location with Katie and Claire on the 4.6.17. I seem to always organise 2 races in one weekend!
Always a great atmosphere on arrival. Once we registered, face marked with wolf stripes, we were good to go. Plenty of water wading and so much mud. At one point it looked like a war zone, with people trapped in mud and trying to pull each other out.
