For the first 2 weeks of July, I ran Scotland’s iconic NC500 road, 516 miles of coastal roads around the Scottish Highlands, consisting of 15 ultramarathons in 15 days raising money for Mental Health UK, averaging 35 miles a day.
As a passionate runner and someone who has experienced the ups and downs of life, I have come to realize that the lessons learned on the road can be applied to various aspects of our existence.
Just like a marathon tests a runner’s endurance, determination, and spirit, life often presents us with hurdles that require us to dig deep and find strength within ourselves.
This daily blog explores the remarkable parallels between a running challenge, and the journey of life.
I have divided these learnings into 15 lessons, one for each day I ran, so whether you’re a seasoned marathoner or someone who feels faint at the thought of running for a bus, this blog is for you.
