Run, Run, Run!!!

The day started with me dreaming that I had forgotten my running shoes in Munich. I woke up and, as the sleep cleared out of my eyes, I could only swear softly … I had forgotten my running shoes in Munich. But I had luck on my side and I finally found a friend, who could lend me his son’s extra pair of shoes…

And the day ended with me holding the only tangible proof that I had finally managed to complete my first run. Last year, I had almost given up with my knee hurting and frustration piling up when people suggested that it possibly wasn’t for me.

Thank you, Dad! This one’s for you.

I am still connecting donations for the Asha project – you can donate on my Betterplace.org page. Thank you for your support!

  1. congratulations on your first marathon, I have only every done a few 1/2 marathons, so I sort of understand just how hard it is! and it is wonderful to raise funds for a good cause while being a finisher! Good luck on your next run.

    • Thank you for your lovely words! My next goal would be to move on to doing a half marathon sometime early next year. I’ll keep working on it and at pushing for the cause I so strongly believe in. Dreamers have a responsibility too.. 🙂

  2. there you are….there can be no greater thrill than finishing a run….i know because iam one of those who cheers on the runners …i haven’t run one…but i hope to do so one day.

    i hope the days are good? and that you are well settled and happy??

    • Hey Kismet!.. 🙂 All is well at my end… Settled and happy? Well, I doubt I’ll ever settle…and being happy isn’t an option! Its a must!.. 🙂
      That’s what the run is about – you gotta keep moving…and keep smiling! Trust life is doing good by you too? I’ve just read your recent post…nourishment for the soul, as always!
      Take care! Many hugs and love from Munich!
