This post may sound maudlin' but I promise I'm as sober as a sober person.
I've just registered for the 10k at Balmoral in April 2017.
The significance of this for me is that in April this year, I ran the 5k at Balmoral just THE DAY AFTER finishing the Couch to 5k plan. Well I ran most of it and walked up the wee hilly bits. But it was such a buzz, in spite of the fact that it was snowing at the time!
Registration opened for the 2017 event today so I thought I would go for the 10k this time. Unlike the one and only 10k event I've done thus far, this one has a big hill in it so that will give me something to focus on over the winter...
But I'm just so thankful for the distance I've come (literally I suppose!) since I got off the couch at the beginning of February. I feel each new wee milestone brings me a fresh new sense of wonder and gratitude. Each day I have planned to go out the thing that makes me go, even if I'm tired or the weather's rubbish, is that I don't ever want to lose this glow.
Also, I'm thankful that I get to hang out with you lovely people.
