This is what recovery looks like to me!
So as I have been out of hospital a while and have maintained a healthy weight I have done something I never thought I’d ever be able to do.
I have signed up to my first half marathon!
This time last year I couldn’t even walk up the stairs without feeling weak – I genuinely thought I was going to die, that’s how little energy I had. Today I received my half marathon training pack and you know what, I CAN DO IT!
To me this is what recovery looks like. I have always said the most important words to me are SECOND CHANCES and that is why I have chooses to run for Myton Hospice. The nurses at Myton help people who will not get a second chance.
I’m living life to the full now and having the energy to run feels amazing.
I’ve got my second chance and I’m going to do something amazing with it- I am never going to look back.
Is there something you have always wanted to do, but your eating disorder or mental illness has held you back? Recovery is fighting everyday until you are strong enough mentally and physically to do it!
I want to raise as much money as I can for people who don’t have the second chance that I do.
