Anonymous said: If you dont mind me asking, what happened to your dad?
Back in 2009 he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer which he battled but couldn’t beat and ultimately passed away in April 2010. This was about a month after my first ever race I ran. It was because of this I am where I am today, my dad was the one who pushed me to run a 1/2 marathon that I was in no way prepared for but made me fall in love with this sport.
Sitting on the couch with Alex looking at old pictures of my dad and I, with tears in my eyes.
It’s moments like these that I’m so happy I have someone like Alex to be here for me.
JUST SO YOU KNOW:
- If you are battling an eating disorder, that makes you a survivor
- eating disorders are not random, they came in to your life when you need to cope with the unbearable
- therefore, you were looking for a way to be strong and survive
- but giving up the eating disorder does not make you weak
- it just means you are finding a new, healthy way to survive
- and eventually
- you are going to live
In most sports, the goal is to win. Running is different. The purpose of running is to run your heart out and leave everything on the course.
A successful race isn’t just about winning, its about having nothing left when its over and knowing that you couldn’t do any better than you did.
