Our happy place. A place of quite a few PBs. 2:00:31 for a half marathon. I doubt I’ll ever get close to that again. A place of challenge. A place of celebration. Dinners, breakfasts, shopping, late night glasses of wine by the Yarra River. Time out with friends to pursue running dreams. Much searching for good deals on accommodation and airfares to get there. Lots of anticipation and counting of days until we get to fly over Bass Strait for special occasions and running events.
Today a scene of unnecessary tragedy where one person’s actions has taken the lives of three people and injured so many more.
My heart is breaking for the families of those who have lost loved ones. My heart breaks for those suffering both from physical injuries and for those who were there and saw it all happen.
Life is precious. We never know what’s around the corner. Let’s decide to be happy. Just this week Janette made the decision to sign up for Run Melbourne in July, then Pauly and I did and yesterday so did Louie. Only today all of us booked our accommodation which is only a few blocks from where the tragedy happened.
For Team Quackers Run Melbourne will be all about celebrating what is wonderful about life: friends, health, running and holidays together. We are very blessed little ducks.
Happy running 🙂
