I have just completed the Prospect Run the Rainbow 5k at Lydiard Park. 🌈😁😁😁😁!
Today was the ultimate run for me. The reason I started running was about the realisation that I’ll be 50 next year and how lucky I am to have lived so long. I thought with a heavy heart about how I miss my brother Tony ,who passed away 5+ years ago at just 46 years old. He was such a laugh! Such a pest and such a big part of our lives that so much joy was lost without him to tease his 5 sister’s and quite frankly be a royal pain in the arse. He absolutely loved that role. 🤨 Waaay too much! 🤣!
Today was all about living though and reminiscing and being grateful for those memories of laughter and joy!😍 He would be proud that I started running because of him and he would certainly tell me he did me a huge favour, “as usual” (cheeky beggar! 🤣)
Today, I felt his presence every step of the way. I have completed the run of my life and no matter how much further, faster or better I run in the future this will always be the best run I’ve ever done!! 😭 I don’t have any idea what my time was, as they didn’t do timing and I was so busy in tears at the end for what this meant to me, I hadn’t even realised the run had ended. And then I forgot to stop my app. But you know what? It really doesn’t matter! I ran!! I ran and I ran!! 😭😭😭😍And I have bling too! 🌈🥇😭! These are the happiest tears I’ve shed in years! I did it! Was it a PB?? Oh yes!! 😍✊🏽
Thank you all for the encouragement, the sharing and the motivation to help me on this life changing journey!! I am so grateful! 🙏🏽❤️
