Have I Caught the Running Bug Again?

have I caught the running bug

Since 2014 when I first started running and telling the app to F$%* off I never thought I would find something I loved so much!

But I have decided to start again because it really helped my mental health last time and with my current issues (see Time to Talk Tuesdays series) I am hoping it does the same again. On the days I haven’t been well enough to go for a run I have gone out for a 30 minute walk instead to at least try to keep my fitness up.

It’s like our thing, it’s great because I have watched her progress from tip toeing across the finish line, to walking and now running across the line. Now I can’t find one of me pregnant but that maybe a good thing! Read more
