Laura's 17 in 2017 challenges #6 and #7

This month I attempted another two challenges, the Colour Me Rad and Race for Life runs.

Challenge 6 was Colour Me Rad and alongside my mum and sister we ran 5k in the rain! Luckily this time we got to stop and catch our breath whilst throwing paint at one another. Such a good fun morning, although still trying to get the paint out of my trainers!

Challenge 7, was the Race for Life 5k, which took us to Glasgow Green once again. This challenge I signed up my friend Rachel as my running buddy, and for someone who hadn’t trained she did amazing! The crowds on the day were brilliant with a sea of pink clothing everywhere!

We were scheduled to do Challenge 8, climbing Ben Lomond, but due to the weather warnings at the bank holiday weekend we have had to reschedule the plan a bit! However, got a couple more challenges coming up this month, which aren’t running, so will hopefully will give the old knees a rest!

Thanks to everyone who has already donated to the JustGiving page and supported me. I am overwhelmed that I have nearly reached my target, never thought I would raise this much!
