She’s gone.....

She’s gone.....

So I ran...with a heavy heart & a head full of sadness but I ran...just a short one this morning...I chose the comforting voice of Mr Smooth.....& the dreaded W5R3, who’d have ever thought that would ever be a run of choice?!! My robot legs kicked in after about 10 minutes...but I had robot lungs & a robot head this morning too...I think I was a bit numb to be honest, I even ran past the 20 min finish without realising...

Thank you for all your kind replies yesterday...& virtual hugs...it means the world to me...now I have to be there for those little boys whose worlds have changed forever 💔

Hi Mummycav, I hadn't picked up on your earlier post until now, so sorry to hear about your friend. Take your time, no pressure on yourself, maybe just give yourself time to grieve. If you feel like running, run. My thoughts and prayers are with you and the boys x

So sorry for your loss MummyCav.

Grief takes its toll, you may not feel like running for a while, or it might be a release for you. My heart goes out to those little boys and you at this terribly sad time.

I know you will do your best for everyone, stay strong, and take care of yourself too... Big hug.xxx

Really don't know what to say, hugs coming your way from both Mrs LeeU and myself, at least your friend knew she was loved and has a great friend in you.

Grieve, if you can, talk about it with someone and grieve some more. Bottling up grief doesn't help anyone.

So sorry for your loss. I have been through a bereavement, my Grampy passed away 3 weeks ago (he was my dad really). The running really helped so keep on going, we are all thinking of you and right behind you. Take each day as it comes and go with whatever emotion it brings.
