I did it! I didn't want to go out this morning, we had a family bereavement last night so I told the wife I was putting my shoes away as my head wasn't in the right place, she told me to think of this mornings run as a time to reflect and think on my own, with no distractions. So, I did as I was told (reluctantly) and headed out of the door and down to the river.
It was perfect nobody but me out, even the usual dog walkers were avoiding the rain.
I did my run whilst thinking of my uncle and the good times and found the memory I kept coming back to was him being my guinea pig while I practiced my sales techniques, telling me where I was going wrong and that the only way I would ever achieve anything was to be stubborn, set my sights on something and go for it.
So I did, and while this was the most emotional run I think I'll ever do, it was also the one that flew by the quickest!
Thanks Denis, I'll have a whiskey with you tonight ☺
