Great RUNNING Story 🏃🏻💨💨👍
When I ran a PB in the 2010 Rome Marathon, in what can only be described as an ‘interesting’ outfit.. I think I was raising money for cancer research that year. I hardly recognise myself of 8 years ago, 18kg heavier, not a clue what I was doing, no strength at all, to now when I’m running mid 2:30’s marathons and dedicate my whole life to running.
My diet was essentially fried and every food I ate was beige in colour, I drank alcohol to excess 2 or 3 times a week and ran to try to keep weight off, but honestly I didn’t enjoy it… Running is hard when you live that lifestyle. I barely ran another step after Rome, it was five years before I’d lace up my trainers properly again. My mid 20’s partying phase had begun!
My outlook towards running now is so different. I run for fun, I run to clear my head, I run to understand myself better, I run to help others, I run to find my limits of what I’m capable of. I turned my life around, as I finally realised that running could give me way more than any party could. It’s bought great friends, quality food, a healthy work/life balance and given me so many goals in life to strive for.
It’s never too late to make some small changes in your life to get where you want to be. Run for the right reasons of course, but run as it brings the better version of yourself out. Believe in yourself, there is nothing special about me, most people could run the times I do it’s just about building that desire to want to do it. And believe me, it feels absolutely incredibly awesome when you finally reach those goals!! Challenge yourself, see what changes you can make today!
