Mini marathon update

Posted on | June 11, 2010 | No Comments

Well, tis all done and dusted now. Last Monday myself and my sister Claire, ably supported by the brothers Phili and Brían, headed into the Harcourt hotel. There we met up with  a gang of our cousins as part of the 1 in 1000 Flora Women’s Mini Marathon team.

The aim was to raise money to complete a new four bed Cystic Fibrosis isolation unit in Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital Crumlin. Cystic Fibrosis is Ireland’s most common life-threatening inherited disease. Its a cause which is very close to our hearts, especially with my cousin Ruairí’s passing, aged 28,  last December from Cystic Fibrosis whilst waiting on the lung transplant list.

It was a great day, despite the rain and the crowds. You wouldn’t want to be claustrophobic whilst taking part in this event ;-)   The banter was gas and spirits were high. I thoroughly enjoyed jogging along with my sister and cousins. Good fun. I was delighted to complete the route as its my first race since 2004. Thankfully, this time, I didn’t discover I was pregnant the day after the event so hopefully I will keep the running and fitness up.

If you’ve a spare cupla euro, my sponsorship page is here. Huge thanks to those who have already supported me, its very much appreciated. If you haven’t already got yourself a organ donor card, please think about applying for one here.
