Star letter WILD AND FREE

Your article ‘Run, baby, run’ (February issue) resonated with me so much that I’d signed up to R.E.D (Run Every Day) within minutes of reading it! After I was diagnosed with cancer in 2009, I committed to running as an escape. I got the bug and continued, raising over £15,000 for charity. It gave me an outlet for the anger and agony of no longer being able to have birth children due to my cancer. It dampened adrenaline-fuelled days of stress once we adopted our two beautiful children and has continued to be woven into the tapestry of my life. Running has saved me from falling on my darkest, most vulnerable days. Last October, I ran the Birmingham Marathon, cheered on by familiar faces and total strangers. Since then, I have been a bit relaxed, but seeing your article flicked a switch. I’ve run every day in snow, rain and wind. Running makes me feel alive, giving me a sense of belonging, as I weave among the trees with my spaniel at my heels. Thanks for the nudge I needed. Nicole

About Psychologies

We encourage you to fall in love with life, to get out of your head and into nature. Spring is officially here and we’re encouraging you to try a ‘micro-adventure’ –  a 24-hour foray outside into the fresh air whether it’s walking in the hills, or sleeping under the stars. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, exhausted and fed up of slaving to support a lifestyle that doesn’t make you happy, then read how decluttering and minimalism can help you start creating a life based on values, not things in our  dossier. Join our month-long Psychologies Decluttering Challenge with expert Cait Flanders, author of The Year Of Less, who will coach us on how to simplify our lives.
