I was asked recently, ‘What made you choose running?’ and after thinking about it, I responded by explaining that running chose me. I had signed up to a fancy gym that had all the amazing first-class facilities to use. All classes included in the membership and 30 minutes worth of personal training, at no additional cost.
However, due to the anxiety I felt at the time I never really went; I think I visited around five times in the 12 months my membership lasted. Eventually, I started walking around the block alone, in the early hours of the morning. I liked the streets almost empty and the freedom to workout, without eyes on me.
I have no regrets, only additional goals now set in place – run more and eat more veg!
Thank you all for being here with me on my health journey 😊
