I entered my first ever foot race yesterday! It was a twilight 5K run along the Swan River, and I did it in just under 30 minutes. My wonderful
girlfriend was at the finish line waiting for me and took the picture above, bless her. She said she got really emotional waiting for me to come in and thinks she’ll be a mess if I ever do manage to run an ultra.

It was such fun and I’m so proud of myself for entering, after a lifetime of avoiding group and team sports because I kept getting told I wasn’t good enough, screamed at for not being fast enough, laughed at for even thinking I had any right to take part. Running is so inclusive. It makes me so happy.
