JP’s Team

My next run…. I’m getting to be a cheerleader! On May 8th, I will be wearing my JP’s Team Singlet with pride and just possibly might be in a tutu, supporting the rest of JP’s team at the Chocolate Run.

If you don’t know who JP is… Please check out his blog…  http://www.breathethroughthis.com/

As well as his website, which details the “team”… http://www.runjprun.com/jps-team.html

It’s an honour to share in this privileged with being on a team, helping to support a cause, raise awareness as well as fundraise as you go for different runs throughout the year.

This is a running crew that truly understands, not everyone runs like a hare, some of us are turtles. We are not loved any less, or judged in any way. We are out there, to support and love each other.

I’ve attended two of the “JP’s fun runs” and was unable both times to actually run with the family, but the support was still there, the hugs, laughter and smiles regardless of how cold it was, we were there for one reason, united by JP and the mission of JP’s team.

For anyone that is wanting to just come try a group run, with some fantastic people, please look up JP’s team on facebook and watch for the next fun run. You won’t be left behind, someone will run with you, and mostly you will feel comfortable. Even if there are wogglers, you won’t be left behind.  We all start somewhere.

Also, if you feel that your wallet is a bit heavy, you decided you don’t need your Starbucks fix for the day, please consider  donating to one of these two charities that help and work with survivors of childhood sexual abuse. http://www.runjprun.com/donate.html

Surgery

 

If most of you’ve been wondering, why hasn’t this girl posted anything in a while?

Well the truth is: I had major surgery. It wasn’t a little in and out. The hospital was my home for over three very very long days.

Recovery has been slow, and I can only beg a surgeon and team of doctors so much to let me exercise. But the day finally came. I was told, light light jogging. I felt like a newbie. My legs didn’t know what to do, but I finally got back into a pattern. Each week I am seeing a vast improvement in my time and I am feeling so much better.

I know the road to recovery will be long, paved with a few bumps, dips and sharp curves, but I’m ready. I never back down from a fight, or a challenge and this will be no different.

I need to thank my friends, family and running family for the continuous support. The love all of you has shown has been amazing and heartfelt.

So 2016 (What’s left)…. I’m coming for you….
