We DID IT!!!!

Trace (My Sister), Kiaya(my Niece) and Myself all completed our Race for life!
I say that as though its a big thing, well to us its a big thing, considering,
Trace has a bad back, arthritis and other problems.
I haven't walked so far since my back surgery last june, and I have athritis too.
Kiaya (trace's Daughter) is fitter than us both!
It was soooooo WET! the puddles were like rivers, the mud was like thick GLUE, and we all got soaked through to our skin, it was the worst possible night to do it.
I finished in 1hr 10mins, Trace & Kiaya took 1hr 30mins.
Kiaya wouldn't leave her mums side and she ended up so very cold she was given a blanket and foil to keep her warm.
The Support staff, actually supported Trace all the way around and walked her right to the finish line. She said without them she wouldn't have made it.
We both used walking sticks, I know I would have ended up on my backside without it!
Kiaya is ok, a little sore but ok.
Trace is in pain and having trouble walking.
ME... I am in big trouble, back, legs, feet, hands are all sore! I need a holiday!
Thanks to those that sponsored me, it means the world to me....
Plus Hubby said last night in bed when he gave me a hug.... His mum would have been proud of me!!! I cried!
