One of the best moments was seeing all the great people running. Everyone was happy and friendly!
The worst moment was after the race - I was in pain!

I love all animals no matter how big or small. But my favourite would have to be dogs, everytime I see a dog I always have to go pat them.

Get involved with whatever you can! It's easy to fundraise and it makes you feel awesome. There are plenty of local platforms where you can be involved like fairs and community events. Every little bit counts.
