Cancer, it affects us all – UPDATE

Firstly I wish to thank everyone for their support to Team Adlington whether by messages or donations. So far we have raised $2140 for the Lung Foundation Australia what a great effort by you all.

It was a great day especially having my family around me. I couldn’t get over the number for people that were at the event (33000+) and the great atmosphere. Serious runners mixed with the not so serious but everyone was there to have a great time and

to help out their favorite charity. We set off around 9am and it wasn’t too soon after that my worst fear was realised …

On to the Cahill Express way and we were greeted with a fantastic view of Circular Quay and the Opera house.

What a view

Almost home and I must admit I was starting to struggle with my breathing and a bit of disorientation but no sooner had I started to slow down my family were there giving me moral support and Jess provided me with some miracle water. A minute or so later everything was better and we headed for the finish.

We crossed the finish line in 59:36, no record breaking time but we did it and what was more special for me was that we did it as a family. Thanks to everyone again for your support and you still are able to donate clicking here.

We FINISHED
