Running the Ashby 20: Sunday 9 March 2014

Health & Well Being at Work


  Eden Springs' own Darryl updates us on his training to run the London Marathon. Please do support Darryl’s fundraising at push it Ran the Ashby 20 yesterday in the lovely warm sunshine! 1200+ people turned up for the race, which is organised to coincide with London marathon training. There was a fantastic atmosphere and great support all round from local people embracing the race as part of local culture. Personally I was very pleased with my race with a very modest 3hrs 22min. The last two miles were very tough going but I achieved yet another milestone: every step over 19 miles was a step further than I'd ever run in my life. I got very emotional at the end as four years ago my life was as low as it has ever been (won't go into details) and I have been able to turn my life around – with the support and belief in me from my family and true friends (mostly my gorgeous fiance), set myself goals AND achieve them. Life is good right now :) ashby 20 darryl johnsonashby 20 darryl johnson
