They say when a door closes somewhere a window opens.
I won't lie its been a tough few weeks.
There are a number of things going on at the moment, including a second Lockdown for Wales that has been looming for a while. The 'come down' after the London Marathon, even though it was virtual, was bigger than I anticipated.
Then to top it all on a 5k run, where I got a new PB, I did something to my foot which has prevented me from being able to do more than a mile walking at a time.
Things weren't helped by seeing picture of people with their VLM medals and T shirts, whilst there was no sign of mine.
Now as an event manager I know how difficult it is to fulfil 45,000 t shirts and medals, but I was starting to wonder where mine was.
Today however....it arrived. I am so thrilled! This is just the sort of pick up I needed.
I know I have completed other races but this has felt like a major achievement. As my friend Paul said - "Only 1% of people have evr completed a marathon" - Well thats me.
I am taking things easy, allowing time for my foot to get better, but I also want to get on with my Wales Coastal path Challenge - less than 250 to go.
To keep me occupied I have be helping MoRunning prepare for this years 'virtual' races and did a video chat with them today - see their FB page.
If you can spend a little time supporting mens health then please join me at MoRun this year - ok you will be running on your own but happy to run on the same weekend (14/15 Nov)
After 24 years of helping others to achieve their running goals - it is now my time.
