The truth about running

Hi friends – it’s been so long since my last blog post, but after chatting with a friend today I was inspired to jump back on my blog and post again.

I’ve been so blessed in the last 12 months to have discovered something that has changed my life completely, has brought me so many friends, happiness, and fulfilment – and from something I never thought I would ever find or enjoy – running.

Initially I started running to lose weight.  Whilst not overweight, I was about 10kg’s over where I had always been, and I wanted to do something about it.

That first run back in May 2014 changed everything.

I’ve made lifelong friendships, shared the most wonderful experiences, and met people that I now consider family.

I can’t put into words how grateful I am for every single person I have met during my journey.  And for every single ache and pain, every laboured breath, and cramped muscle along the way.

Running is so much more than fitness – it’s about overcoming yourself, and your limitations.  It’s about finding a strength you didn’t know that you possessed.  It’s about pushing yourself and refusing to give in.  And it’s about making friendships with the most wonderful people.

I am truly blessed.

    So wonderful to see your blog back up and “running”…… a focus on the positive things in our lives is a real gift and I so pleased for you that you have this back in your life. xx

  3. Morning Meg….The running group is special. Over the years with our busy lives and new technology, we have lost the art of network and community spirit, but most of all, we had lost the art in supporting each other….Love your posts, especially being there to listen…
