The runner versus the person..

As runners we do our best to get the best out of ourselves and so to as people we strive for that special spark. We try to excel or should I say strive?

I have had to really reign in on all the running and mileage the past few months because there has to be a balance between doing too much of one thing and not enough of another. Family life was affected by my love and passion for running to the point where I had to make a decision stop running…or run less and be a better husband and father, not sure that I have scratched the surface of being a good husband and father yet? but just like running, we never give up when the going gets tough we persevere and carry on regardless.

Thankfully I have a very supportive network of friends from all around the world who never judge or criticise. As always my thanks goes out to all of the folks who make my life more bearable www.Domseaseoil.com , www.Lacelocker.com , CurranzSports ,Mpg-Coach

Hardships are a guide to your destiny.

Inspirational quote

Let me start by saying hello😂 It feels like I haven’t blogged in absolutely ages..Ever since August of last year things have changed a lot and that’s all due to The Amazing journey getting to the Greatwallmarathon in  China meeting and making inspirational new friends from all over the world. I believe that we all have a path to follow and although we follow that path, sometimes there are obstacles and instead of trying to climb over them  we choose to avoid them in the hope that they won’t reappear. This is where the trouble lies because we didn’t face the obstacles head on from the start.
Nearly five years ago I became unemployed  depressed and despondent not knowing from day to day what curve ball life was going to throw at me..then I got the chance to re-educate myself it was tough but with my rekindled love for running and a burning desire to do something worthy with my existence all of these factors have helped. It is never easy sucking in your pride but if you know what I’m talking about you will also know that it is all worth it. My motto at the moment is …I love what I do and do what I love if this is not the definition of passion I really and truly don’t know what is??

I am truly grateful for the friendship and friends that I have met on this arduous journey of discovery and look forward to making more along my exciting new one. I am evolving into a better more resilient person with all of the traits that I have picked up along the way and there’s always more room to improve. 

The image at the top of the page is so true to my current situation and is so good to relate and hopefully to inspire others that through hardships comes learning and understanding and a better you.. I am sure that there will still be hardships to overcome and relish the opportunity at another challenge be it with life, running a marathon or possibly a personal challenge or should I call it an adventure of self discovery.

Please feel free to share this Text image of hardship. We all face these challenges differently but if you have the right supportive network of friends around you there is no limit to what can be achieved. I feel that I am the proof of what positive thinking and a change in mind set can achieve..So thank you for your support over the years and also my deepest gratitude to those that read my blogs and know me from where  I was a couple of years ago, to where I am now👍
