How was it for you? - Quotes and pictures from London 04

Time: 6:49

was Run Rabbit Run (also Walk Wabbit Walk)

Best Moment: Seeing kids faces and hearing their cheers when a furry white rabbit was walking towards them (ME in costume!)

Worst Moment: Having to walk on pavements and dodge pedestrians because the roads were being reopened.

Biggest Surprise: How much water a furry rabbit costume can hold!

My goal: Having an injury, my goal was to complete the race (walking) in order to hand-over in excess of £10,000 to my local hospice as a result of my fund-raising.

Finishing Time: 6.49

What would I do differently: Carry my infamous HPWC - (high-powered water cannon) to squirt at people if they didn't throw money into my buckets.

Key to Success: Knowing how much money I had raised and how important it was to complete the race was key to my success.  It kept me going when at times, I found it tough. Celebrating: Already celebrated with forumites on Sunday evening but will continue to do so at the next RW social in London.
