They say all the best ideas are on the spur of the moment ones and I'm hoping this is one of them! The idea to take part in the 5K May Challenge for Cancer Campaign in Suffolk, dressed in a monkey outfit no less, was born after a couple of gin and tonics on a Friday night. In the cold light of day, the thought of walking in a sweaty costume, while making a spectacle of myself, wasn't as attractive as it had been the night before and I nearly cancelled it, saying it was all just a joke. After all, I hadn't given any thought to the weather conditions for a start - it might be unbearably hot or it could be pouring with rain .. and why a monkey suit anyway? (I'd bought it some weeks ago so I could hug my friends safely so this seemed an ideal way of getting it out again to get my money's worth). Raising money for CCiS so the charity can continue helping people in Suffolk who receive a cancer diagnosis is the reason I didn't back out. My mum lost her life to bowel cancer and one of my best friends died from ovarian cancer and I really wish they had been able to get the support that CCiS could have given to them .. and to me. So the challenge is on. I'll be starting from Michael Richards Hairdressers, Penshurst Road in Ipswich at 1030 on Saturday 1st May and finishing (hopefully) at The Shannon pub in Bucklesham. Both businesses have been generous enough to give me their support for which I'm truly grateful. According to the map it should take around an hour and a half to get from one to the other, but I think I'll be lucky to get to The Shannon by tea time! If you're in the area, please give me a wave .. you won't miss me! Please help me raise as much money as I can .. you'll be convincing me it WAS a good idea after all! Thank you so much x
