With London Marathon approaching this weekend, I’ve been taking a look back at the past few years of my life and wanted to share how I’m feeling right now.
Last night I watched this video that my friend Orsi filmed. It helped to remind me of some really good times that I get to revisit this weekend.
After that I found something I wrote back in march while I was leaving Berlin. Here it is:
As I sit in this departure lounge I think back to the past few days in Berlin with a smile on my face and a warm heart. The last couple of years of my life haven’t been the happiest. The dark clouds of depression have been a regular part of life and I dealt with it in my own way. I wasn’t in a good place.
Now I can stand here and be proud of myself and what I have achieved recently. Even looking past my weight loss and recent PBs in Brighton and Berlin. I’m happy with my life right now and that should be celebrated.
I look at myself with love eveveryday. in the mirror each day and see past my own insecurities. I see myself for what I really am, a strong young man.
I would like to thank my friends and family for always being there for me in times of need. You have helped to lift me out of the place where I was and now I look forward to the life that I have in front of me each day.
Life got hard after I ran the London Marathon in 2012 but I’m good now and that’s a testament to the power of Run Dem Crew.
Things in life aren’t always easy but what I can say is that they will get better. To everyone running the London Marathon on Sunday, enjoy it, smile, high five kids and be grateful that you can run a marathon. There’s so many people out there that don’t ever get that opportunity.
