I have rather stupidly agreed to run 5km tonight for ‘Race for Life’ Although looking at the website: ‘Join us in one of our 150 women-only 5km races across the country and help us cure cancer faster’

Oh dear. Firstly, I’m a bloke, secondly I am a very unfit bloke.

No worries, 80’s steel will get me through (a sax solo and a key change woudn’t go amiss either). And ofcourse the fact it’s for Charidi.

Risin’ up, back on the street
Took my time, took my chances
Went the distance
Now I’m back on my feet
Just a man and his will to survive
So many times, it happened too fast
You trade your passion for glory
Don’t lose your grip on the dreams of the past
You must fight just to keep them alive

* It’s the eye of the tiger
It’s the thrill of the fight
Risin’ up to the challenge
Of our rival
And the last known survivor
Stalks his prey in the night
And his fortune must always be
Eye of the tiger

Face to face, out in the heat
Hangin’ tough, stayin’ hungry
They stack the odds
Still we take to the street
Fot the kill with the skill to survive
(Repeat *)

Risin’ up straight to the top
Had the guts, got the glory
Went the distance
Now I’m not gonna stop
Just a man and his will to survive
(Repeat *)

The eye of the tiger
(4 times till fade)
