Thanks & Throwback Thursday

The blogging and whole online community never seizes to amaze me. The words and encouragement I received after my previous post are overwhelming. Thank you so much everyone, I really appreciate it. I am already on my way back to my happy place.


I haven't done a Throwback Thursday in a while so here is one for today.


This is the oldest photo of me running that I own...


1973 - I was 10 years old.


Happy running my friends!

So you started the barefoot running style before it was even "in style"... :) So glad that you are en route to your happy place Johann! Have a great weekend of running.

You were already a runner. Glad you feel better.
Rugby: a very good SA, it could be a candidate for the victory even if I think that the champion will be the New Zealand. Ireland and England are less clever than SA and All Blacks. Italy; we don't have a kicker and we MUST play in the easiest possible way: rack and scrum for 80 minutes, never off-loads not to risk the intercept.

Glad to hear things are going better!
Nice photo, Johann!

Amy said...

I was having trouble commenting the other day. I'm so glad you are ok and feeling a bit better. A bit more running will bring you back to your happy place.

Great running pic!!

I'm just catching up lately and your last post just left me sick. I'm so happy to hear that you're ok but so sad that you had to have that experience. I hope you find your peace soon. :)

Michael said...
