Its done ✔️ Nunca pensei que fossemos conseguir fazer 130km a pé, depois de tanta chuva, calor, subidas, descidas, entorses, 40 000 bolhas ..etc,ficava aqui o dia todo... Mas se acreditar-mos tudo é possivel 🙏🙏🙏 #santiago#trip#wedoneit
13.1miles, has done more for me than bring pain & a rush of endorphins.... It's provided an opportunity to reflect, refocus & reset.
It's made me realise the impact mental illness has had on me, how it's gripped my life for so long.
Over the years particularly the last ten years there's been many attempts on my own life, hospital admissions & therapy sessions yet there's been support like none other from the amazing @mentalhealthmuscle family.
Since having the support of the mhm family & the founder Aaron, my life has completely changed, not so long back I was on the receiving end of active encouragement of ending my life, promoting I ended it to make others happy, a year ago I would probably have believed these words but @mentalhealthmuscle has given me this new found confidence to ignore, to realise I'm worthy of living.
When times got tough today, when my glutes felt they were on fire & when I felt I couldn't go on I remembered all the times when I had been surrounded by means to end my life and realised I got through that so what was 13.1 miles in the grand scheme?
Running today for the family I've made through Mental health muscle gave me the strength to carry on, when the tears came at the 11th mile remembering who I was helping & holding mental health muscle in my heart it got me through to the finish.
The physical pain despite being torture is nothing compared to the phycological pain I myself have felt or the many others who battle mental illness on a day to day basis.
Mental illness doesn't make us weak it makes us warriors.
