Heather and Ruth run for MRDF

Ruth and I had a great time in London on 10 July running for MRDF as part of the team of six.
The sun shone and the atmosphere was great, with thousands of runners putting in their all for their chosen charities.
There was a massive queue to get to the start line and once we were all over it, I did not even see Jane who was our fastest runner again!
I ran with Judy-pictured next to me on the photo who was from Manchester and Stockport District and despite the fact that she could have run faster than me, she ran with me all the way! 
We were constantly trying to avoid discarded water bottles and other runners and having a laugh over some of the fancy-dress costumes as we ran.
It was exciting to run past London`s famous landmarks like Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament.
