8 years ago: ruptured ligaments, grade 3 sprain, triple metatarsal fracture and if that wasn’t enough I got extreme calf muscle atrophia... “forget impact sports” they said “good job you aren’t a runner you will never be able to run” they repeated as I hobbled down the hospital hallway with my crutches...I’d lost everything: my job, my partner, my ability to play sports and I had 10 days to turn around my life or I would also lose my right to stay in Singapore, where I lived at the time... Needless to describe I physically and mentally broken I was
I remember standing at the bus stop at Gleneagles Hospital thinking “there’s only one way to go from here and that’s forward, on & up: first put a fitness plan because without a healthy body & mind you can’t achieve anything, second get a job, third make the most out of every moment more than ever... “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger” “when there is a will there is a way” became my mantra
8 years later, an amazing husband, 2 loving furbies, another continent, a switch to full time training & coaching, 7 marathons, over a dozen 1/2 marathons, a plenty fun 5&10ks... Never doubt or question your ability to pull yourself out of any situation, to move forward, never take for granted what people tell you, you know yourself better than anyone and you can achieve whatever you set your mind to because when there is a will there is a way!
