On Sunday, I took part in my first ever Great North Run. The worlds most famous half marathon (13.1 miles) located in the North East of England. In total, there were just under 58,000 runners whom took part. To line up alongside this amount of people, not to mention penned at the start and run with them, would of been something I could of not done even a year ago. Yesterday was not just about completing the Great North Run but it was my way of standing up to the years of social anxiety and depression that I have had and still battle. Standing up to it, is exactly what I did!
