2018 is my first full year as a runner and my first year competing in the Sleaford Striders Athletic Clubs race series. I am by far not going to win the series, I am still learning and getting myself stronger. That said, it is all good fun and for me very exciting. As you maybe able to tell, running has become a big part of my life and a major factor in my recent recovery. I’ll talk about the later in another post.
The shopping list written and trolley in hand
it’s time to hunt down the edible festive delights.
Enough seasonal food to last a fortnight yet
consumed within 48 hours.
On the holy eve peace
comes upon us for the
new day to follow the
holy evening brings celebration
of the birth of peace.
There is no doubt that 2017 has been the most difficult year of my life and the battle’s look to be going into 2018. That said, there has still been a lot that I am thankful for from new friendships to new experiences to a new found passion.
I have mentioned but not gone into detail within some of my articles, that when I was a child, I was sexually assaulted. I have also wrote the poem ‘What did you think‘ which was addressed to my attacker. I’m not going to go into the full details of the abuse, all I will say is it was extreme and with any attack of its kind, life changing!
