I Run Because I Can – It’s a Privilege

02 Oct 15  / Pete

Running always puts doubts in my mind. Long distance can be mentally draining and challenging. But I like to remind myself how lucky I am to be able to run at all.

It isn’t just a case of fitness, but it seems that some people are dealt a raw deal in life and they aren’t able to enjoy the things that most of us take for granted. I feel like a very lucky guy to be able to keep fit and enjoy life to the full.

Touch wood, I am in good health and I am working on getting fitter, healthier and even happier. But next time you run, just have a thought for anyone you know who is suffering from illness or anyone who has, and remember that you are pretty darn lucky to put those runners on and hit the road. Not everyone is that privileged.

Sorry for being a bit of a soppy serious sod on this blog today, but certain events today have made me have a bit of an appreciation moment. Clearly having a soft sod day! we all have them haha.
