Quick Pic Post

Health is everything

I wanted to post the below picture as it highlights two things. Firstly it highlights a guy who has just crossed a marathon finish line in a time of 3:06 with not a bother in the world. More worryingly it is a picture of a guy with quite a developed and aggressive cancer growing inside.

Leading up to my diagnosis I had zero symptoms to suggest anything sinister was going on, every racing event in all distances that I ran leading up to the marathon was a PB (Personal best). I had never been fitter or faster in my entire life. Not that I want everyone to turn in to hypochondriacs but I would say to people that when it comes to health, it’s better to be safe and get things checked out, than be sorry. Listen to your body.

Please share if you feel it might benefit anyone, thank you.

    You are so right, health is everything and it’s very often something we take for granted.

    • Hi Mel, thank you very much for your kind words, and thanks for reading.

      It really is, health is everything! To be able to be outside now even just for a walk makes me so happy considering all the time when I was isolated in hospital wondering what my outcome would be.

      I do hope so, and later I hope to discuss some important topics I feel may help others. Thank you Mel. I appreciate the comment 👍
