As the event gets closer, I am getting more emotional as this is my first mothers classic. This is an tribute to my mother and all of the mums who have sacrificed so much for all us so we can enjoy the life that we have today. This is what I will be wearing on Sunday as a thank you to my mum who sadly left us 10 years ago and we all miss her so much. She is my hero and I will be doing this run for her.
