One of those rituals in my calendar, the Furnace Inn Fun Run – £2 at Darley Abbey, a very flat route, muddy in places though on mainly pathways there is a small section on the grass and it’s Boxing Day so it gives the world something to do.
But this year was different. There was one thing missing. My best friend, Becky. However, I was there with Paul, my best friend’s husband. He is faster than me on shorter flatter distances – way faster, but I would lead and we would run for Becky.
If the worst thing that can happen in any situation is that you die, then in the situation when you do die, the worst has happened, so there’s nothing to fear. – Scott Douglas
