#NHS1000miles 2021 are you in?

How has 2020 been for you?

As Nessa, played by Ruth Jones in Gavin and Stacey would say ‘I’m not gonna lie to you…’ it’s been an odd, frustrating and on occasions very very sad year. I’ve said goodbye to too many people in 2020 and am acutely worried about the long term impact of the global pandemic on our children and young people. However something that has kept me grounded has been running and the wonderful team #NHS1000miles. As I scroll through my camera roll I’m reminded of lots of happy times in 2020 …

January 2020 ‘Cold Christmas’ ultra
with Elaine & Alex
Park Running with Karen, Charlotte & Jerry,
Feb 2020
March 2020 provided the final official run before the Pandemic took hold …
April 2020 brought out rainbow running shirts
When the official ultras are cancelled we make our own, thanks Barbara, May 2020
June 2020 meant running through glorious fields of poppies
July meant Saturday morning running with Sharon and Louise
August meant a self organised marathon from Rhossili to Mumbles. I think coastal runs are my all time favourite!
The month of August brought the #WeActive challenge with @WeNurses which was so much fun! Wonderfully the nurses won again! Whoop 🙌 can we smash it 2021?!
September meant celebrating a 50th birthday whilst playing aeroplanes
October was the very hilly and windy Beachy Head, which was brilliantly organised!
November offered beautiful views of Hertfordshire, lots of muddy trails explored in 2020
And December provided Santa’s helper, the wonderful ever cheerful Jane! So as we reach the end of 2020 I’m grateful for the friendships and adventures that have been accumulated despite Covid19, the resilience and positivity of fellow exercise pals has been so appreciated, grateful to you all..

Hoping you’ll join us on the adventure of #NHS1000miles in 2021 😉

I’m a Children’s Nurse who is passionate about improving healthcare and life with people who use services. I love getting out in the countryside or to the seaside to promote my mental health and well-being. On a journey to doing 100 marathons (slowly!) & part of team #NHS1000miles (new members always welcome!) I also love charity shopping, cooking and healthy eating too 😉 Sharing thoughts on a range of things that interest me. Comments, challenge, links to further thinking and research are most welcome. Learning and thinking together is always more fun!
