Mindfulness, Health and Togetherness

Welcome to my blog!!!  I started running in 2015 to help with my mental health.  I have suffered with depression for a number of years and after I found running, I noticed that it helped me find peace in my hectic, anxious and depressed mind.

Not only has running had a positive impact on my mental well being, it has also made me a physically much fitter person too.  I am now much stronger and I have had to reduce my trouser waist a number of times to take into account the number of calories that I have burnt off.

Most of the time I run with my wife Gayle.  We always take part in races together and we always cross the finish line hand-in-hand.  Running has made our relationship even stronger and it helps that we can both encourage each other when the going gets tough.

 I hope that you enjoy reading about my adventures in the wonderful world of long distance running.
