Although my post Why I am running for The Christie has just been published, I have been training for the past two weeks and it has been difficult. I am not just talking “oh my legs hurt” difficult, I am talking about compressed nerve, attacked by a dog, nearly quit difficult.
So, it’d be nearly a year since I have even remotely tried to run. I’ve made my excuses and ate everything I could get my hands on. Lately I’ve found myself looking in the mirror and not recognising the person staring back.
It was May when we received the phone call offering us tickets to Wimbledon. It wasn’t a hard decision and once we knew we could have the time off everything was set into motion. We booked the train and paid for the tickets.
