Contrary to what most people think I don't always love exercise and sometimes I struggle to get out. Having said that I try not to think too much about it because if I did I no doubt could sometimes come up with all kinds of excuses!
My success in running through the years is a result of a desire to challenge myself and see what I can achieve. To remove all limitations and strive to be the best I can be.
As passing years slow me down I hold on to the belief that if I keep going with my exercise each day I will be a better me!
I challenge anyone who has found excuses not to exercise to make a commitment to do something every day to improve the quality of their life.

You've Run Your Race
You know where you're going...roads lead to Rome
They've guided you forward and brought you home
Stealthily onward...on your own
Resolute confidence...nurtured and grown
You've run your race...determined you face
The paths ahead with poise and grace
No turning back...fixed straight ahead
Eyes focused and steady...firm steps you tread
There's nothing to say...that hasn't been said
You've risen above the lowly and scared
Many the knocks...some powerful blows
Been on the ropes...put on a show
Not out for the count...kept on your toes
Bounced back...attacked...towering you rose
We stop and admire...we honour...proclaim
Upright in stature...proud in name
Never the loser...no matter what game
Head held high...not drooped in shame
