‘Ask nothing from your running. And you’ll get more than you ever imagined’ – Born to Run
Five days?! I HAVE NOT SPOKEN TO YA’LL IN FIVE DAYS?! A lifetime in the blogosphere, if ever there was one.
Last weeks mileage put me in a body bag and sent me on my merry way this week. And I am not even complaining. Because the past five days have been filled with such wonderous jaw dropping events, that kissing goodbye to my week’s long run was a blessing in disguise.
I was beyond the village of tiredness. I had set up camp in the Bethlehem of exhaustion.
But there were shooting stars aplenty this week.
From secret Nike shoots, to running with Mo Farah *pause* and my inbox being filled with diamonds, it was without doubt the week that showed me that running has more in store for me than I could ever have imagined.

The RDC x BRUNNERS in BLN is going to be some next chemistry. Canny wait.
Me? I’m good. Better than actually. Sometimes I lay back on fresh linen, spark one up and just giggle to myself about how ridiculous this all is. Here I am, me, Candice, south london steam roller, training for a marathon. Running around the world. Meeting people who encourage and inspire me. I am living a dream. Sure, it’s not the one I fathomed for myself. But I can’t help but believe it’s just that touch better.
Like having a dress tailor made instead of buying off the rack, I know it’s going to be the perfect fit. There is no instant gratification, as I have to wait for the steady handed seamstress to work her magic. But I will gladly wait. And when she is done, I’ll claim that it’s too good for wear out of the fear of causing stain or fray. She’ll hush me and slip it over my head anyhow. And when all is said and done, I will spin around in the mirror, amazed at my own reflection.
