A Working Man
I have realised that it’s been about 2 months since my last post, and I guess that’s a reflection on how crazy my life has been over the course of the past few months.
On a really positive note, I returned to work on the 18th of June FULL-TIME after 3 months out sick. I’m so happy about that, it was back in March I was just about to go in for my first week of full time work when I was struck down by Meningitis and so it never happened, but thankfully I’m now back at it and I am hoping that I can get a good run at work going forward. It’s so nice to be back to work Monday to Friday like the rest of my work buddies, I feel I’m just one of them now, back being able to chat and talk about the usual day to day stuff, back to reality. It’s been a long time coming but at least I made it. It is taking a little bit of settling in time getting up to speed, but I know that I’ll be flying in a few weeks.
The Never Give Up 5k/10k
I can’t believe it’s only 2 weeks away! It’s a project I have been working on for a good 9 months now, but it’s safe to say that it’s the last couple of months that I have been working flat out on it. It’s amazing how much needs to be taken care of when organising such a big event. The timing of the event, down to the volunteers, the food, safety measures, advertising, the list goes on and on, and it has kept me very busy indeed. It’s only 2 weeks away now, and I’m very excited about it.
It’s going to be a very special day for myself and my family, as I celebrate my 2 year all clear anniversary, but not just that, it’s going to be a special day for so many other people who are taking part for so many different reasons. I am just so happy to be putting together this special event which will hopefully mark not just a significant day for myself, but for many others too.
For anyone who hasn’t seen it, it’s a 5k/10k fun run and walk in benefit of the Irish Cancer Society in my home village of Inch, Gorey, Co.Wexford on Sunday the 28th of July . You can walk it, or you can run it, I also have medals for all finishers, a kids dash and face painting for the kids, as well as refreshments after the event, so it’s going to be a really fun family day out.
If you would like to register for the event to support it, the link is below. If you can’t make it on the day but you would like to run the virtual option, you can run a 5k or 10k anywhere you like, anytime during the month of July, and I will post a medal to you. Details are on the same link below.

Only 2 weeks to go and I can’t wait, if any of you plan to come on the day, make sure and say hello to me 🙂
