Went out early this morning to run 10 k to make sure I could manage the distance before my first 10 k race at Strathclyde 6 th Sept . Managed it , went really slow but really enjoyed it. But during run realised how significant Sept is going to be for me . 2 yrs since sudden death of my mum - this morning I wasn't sad but just thinking of the fabulous full life she led and all the great times we had together . It's 1 yr since Started c25k because I had promised my 2 1/2 yr old grandson Brody I would run a 1 mile race with him to raise funds for children's cancer. Brody will also have completed 18 mths of daily chemo in Sept - another 18 mths to go but he is responding ok to treatment and starts school soon . Last sept made decision to stop feeling sorry for myself,lose some weight and try and get healthy for 60 th birthday. So lots of milestones coming up and yes I often think ' what if ?' And ' it's not fair ' But today I just felt at peace and it was lovely. I know lots of people are going through difficult times just now and just want to send them my best wishes and although you maybe can't see it there will be a light at the end of your tunnel so just keep hanging in there. If all the rubbish of the last couple of years hadn't happened to our family I would never have found C 25 k and all you lovely people here and on FB so thank you
