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.
