I was on the phone to my best friend a few weeks ago – she had been going through old photos and came across this. She sent it to me and it has made me chuckle, I kid you not dear readers, for about three days solid. I have not a clue what I’m doing, when this was taken or why I needed a deer hunter and swimming goggles to express whatever it was I was trying to express – I don’t even think I’d been drinking! It made me think about being able to have a good old laugh with fantastic friends and reminded me what amazing people I have in my life.
I’ve been a bit sheepish about telling people about my plan to run the Brighton Half Marathon. If I’m truly honest, I thought the reaction would be hysterical laughter. Without exception, the response has been one of overwhelming support and a pledge to come cheer me along on the big day. My best friend even decided to run it with me to keep me company. Not one person has expressed a hint of doubt in my ability to complete it or laughed in my face. I’m sorry dear friends and family for doubting you – I love you dearly – you rock!
I ran a nice, chilled out 5k this morning in the beautiful (but pretty hilly) park near my house. I take a while, but always get there eventually. Need to start practicing those hill runs 🙂 Until then, I need to think more of my friends, stop being paranoid and come clean about my plans for the next few months. Until next time SportsFans – over and out.
