Last year I ran in the Women’s Mini Marathon, which was held in Dublin. I went training with my friends every night and it helped me to keep fit and kept me in a good frame of mind. The day of the marathon the weather was warm and sunny. A big crowd gathered to watch.
We all sang songs while we were waiting for it to start. We had great fun. Young and old joined in. I got a medal, a free tee shirt and a goodie bag for taking part.
After the race we all went for a drink. We really enjoyed ourselves. The money I raised went to the Children’s Hospital for Sick Children in Crumlin.
