Run for Your Lifeline

*Warning: Mention of suicide*

Yesterday, I ran with new orthotics in.

Which you are not supposed to do.

I can barely walk.

But despite the fact that my hips have been completely realigned and for some reason, my abs hurt (???), I don’t regret it.

Yesterday, I ran in the Lifeline Fun Run. Lifeline is a crisis hotline and suicide prevention organisation that assist hundreds of people everyday. Countless lives have been saved through their conscientious approach to mental health assistance. Thanks to sponsors, every entry fee went straight into helping them achieve all this brilliance.

Unfortunately, many, many people die each year as a result of mental illness. This loss is staggering and awful, but the number would be higher if not for the efforts of organisations like Lifeline.

Sore hips for another life saved. Seems worth it to me.

Moral: doing good feels good. Even when it feels like it hurts.
