The One Where I Talk About IVF …

So I haven’t always told the entire story about my reasons for running, and I feel like now is the right time to talk about it. I’ve written a piece for today’s Guardian Running Blog explaining why my running journey started.

  1. Loved this post… thank you for raising Epilepsy Awareness! I love each time my hubby runs a marathon for me 🙂 You runners amaze us all! 🙂

    I just read your article in the guardian and felt compelled to comment. Running has kept me sane and helped me feel like I was still in control during 4 years of trying and 4 punishing rounds of IVF- thank you for your honesty. It isn’t often you read such candid articles about the ivf experience and it meant something to read one that mirrored my own!

      Thanks for your comments. I’m working on a new blog where I will speak very candidly about IVF – the highs and the lows, so keep a look out. I do hope you’re in a good place now. x

    2:21 for someone who hadn’t been running long is pretty good for a half – you should be proud of yourself! (I’m still aiming for something that good.)
    Good luck with the IVF
    Best wishes for the running too.

    My friend mailed me a link to your Guardian article and I felt compelled to say I too have just discovered running but to help me heal from depression. One day I just had to escape and ran. I haven’t looked back and now enjoy it and find that I heal with each step. Thanks.
