I’m still smiling like a loon

Today I went in a run. It was day 18 of #REDJanuary. I have mostly been running in the dark, and the glorious sunshine really changed my mood today. I splashed in puddles, slid about in mud and even jumped over a stream like an over excited Wonder Woman in non matching kit. The countryside was beautiful, and I am still smiling now.

A few months ago I wouldn’t have be capable of running like this. I am so grateful to be on my recovery journey, even though my husband is less keen on the amount of mud I take home on my trainers! It’s a weird feeling to suddenly be aware of how grateful you are for things that you used to take for granted. The sun on my face, the opportunity to have the time and space to run, even jumping in puddles with total abandon. I think it is a glimpse of what other people call serenity.
