I know I haven’t been around here a lot... BUT.... I was jogging round a pond... and then I was being put back together again.... so I could do it again... so I could be put back together... so I could run again ... and then I was being fixed again... and again.... & again...
I have now completed the most physical and mental challenge I have ever undertaken... it was tough, (that’s an understatement), and I wouldn’t have done it without my team mates .. and certainly not without @thebodyrehab – what they don’t know about fixing, mending & manipulating just isn’t worth knowing... and throughout all the pain (and I had quite a bit of that) I wouldn’t have missed it.... it was worth it....
Basically when I crossed the finish line I was thankful that the job was done, I did what was asked of me & I held up my side of the promise... as time is passing I am beginning to realise that what I have done might be a bit special... but the truth is this was down to team work, a bit of luck and good old grim determination ... would I do it again... NO, this for me could not be experienced again, I have had the privilege of meeting 12 most inspiring, understated, determined individuals ever... l was in awe of their dedication and determination and I certainly didn’t want to be the one to let the “13 out 13 in” motto down.... I have a few thanks...I wont apologise...
