Regular followers of my blog will know I ran everyday in January for Mind-my mind and yours. It was shared on the website of this UK mental health charity earlier today, as well as their Facebook and social media channels, and I have raised £260 for Mind so far.

I am so proud that Mind shared my story of how I used running every day in January to help combat my PTSD and boost my mental health. The runnning streak has continued beyond January….I even ran 5k today…in the snow! That’s dedication for you…

Anyway, here is the post I wrote :) It’s weird having your face and words on a screen, but very much good weird :) I’m enjoying taking a moment here to enjoy what I’ve accomplished and how far I’ve moved on since the acute phase of my illness.

I’m really proud of myself today…to be honest I feel proud of myself often, but particularly so today :) It feels good, to feel good.

And that is good :)


Here is my selfie from today to prove I ran ;)

and here is the link to the Mind website HERE …’ll find my story on the front page :)
