Before and after Mouth2Mouth marathon.
This has pretty much been my only run so far in December due to my foot injury. Don’t underestimate the important of good shoes even if you are just running a single mile on a treadmill. @runup2christmas has been put on hold until I can get my trainers back on and as I am just past the 50km mark maybe I can get to 100km. Half the distance I managed last year.
Had a relatively pain free day so will give myself a few more days and will try a run on Sunday with @mimiscottg
Running is quite literally the thing that keeps my head screwed on. And after every hard marathon I promise myself a week off out of self pity which never happens and now I’ve had a week off AND I DONT WANT IT.
Ik had een avond dat ik het liefste in mijn eentje heel ver alleen had gerend! De dagen voor kerst, de dagen met familie en ouders, het valt me zwaar. Rennen alleen leek me het fijnste, hoe anders is de waarheid. De junkies lopen op woensdag en met lichte tegenzin was ik er gewoon op tijd. Goede keus, dit was precies wat ik nodig had, 10 km de mooiste mensen om je heen, 10 km passie delen. Dank! #hardlopen#runhappy#crewlove#runnersworldnl running #polarbenelux#bloodsweatanddata
I’ve been on Lesvos, at the heart of the #EuropeanRefugeeCrisis for the past week working with @yogasportforrefugees - it’s been such a bittersweet experience.
The work being done by @yogasportforrefugees and @ohfcommunitycenter , and the amount of people/refugees they are helping, with such limited resources, is nothing short of incredible. It’s so easy to follow and support them. They’re always in need of volunteers and donations to continue their work.
I didn’t take many pictures this week beacuase I wasn’t here as a photojournalist. I came here to learn. To see @estella_21 and help in whatever small way I could - I coached 3 track sessions, played basketball a couple of times, attempted some #acroyoga and joined the Muay Thai class. I met some great people - refugees, workers, volunteers.
Sport connects people in such a great way. The refugees I met and trained with quickly became my friends. They’re friendly, smart, polite, energetic, quick to smile and laugh. The refugee camps of Lesvos are no place for them. Violence, disease, drugs, rape, theft are all constant threats. Moria Camp (flimsy tents) also happens to be the most overcrowded ‘living space’ on Earth. I’m wearing five layers, six if you count the buff, and I’m cold
It’s a complex issue, but some things are immediately clear to me. The EU Governments and the UNHCR who have the greatest power and responsibility to help, haven’t done enough. The majority of the Media has failed refugees too - often dehumanising them in an attempt to pursue a political agenda.
I just wanted to post some initial thoughts from my time here. #runningcommunity#refugeestories#onehappyfamily#whywerun
Uma vez me perguntaram qual era a minha prioridade neste momento da minha vida.
💭Eu respondi que de alguns anos para cá, mais ou menos uns 10 anos para cá, eu não tenho mais fase, a prioridade sempre sera “eu” e depois vem o que tiver que vir (que hoje no caso é minha filha).
🗝Eu aprendi a me colocar em 1º lugar 🥇 sempre e não porque sou egoísta, orgulhosa, sem humildade. Mas porque eu descobri lá trás que me colocando em 1º lugar e estando bem comigo, tudo, absolutamente T͟͟U͟͟D͟͟O͟͟ a minha volta também fica bem na minha percepção.
Não vivemos um mundo 🌍 de maravilhosas, mas vivemos mais T͟͟O͟͟L͟͟E͟͟R͟͟A͟͟N͟͟T͟͟E͟͟S͟͟ conosco e com o mundo.
❤️Hoje eu sou 1º lugar para mim:
📍Treino todos os dias
📍Me alimento bem
📍Cuido do meu espírito
📍Cuido do meu marido
📍Cuida da minha filha
📍Cuido do meu profissional
E por aí vai...
👉🏻 Isso tudo é para falar: S͟͟E͟͟ C͟͟O͟͟L͟͟O͟͟Q͟͟U͟͟E͟͟M͟͟ E͟͟M͟͟ P͟͟R͟͟I͟͟M͟͟E͟͟I͟͟R͟͟O͟͟ P͟͟L͟͟A͟͟N͟͟O͟͟! Pois, fazendo isso, tudo à sua volta entra em equilíbrio e cada indivíduo ocupa o espaço que deve ocupar sem ninguém fazer mal a ninguém!!!
Boa tarde, Brasewwwwww!!!!!
