One of the reasons why I keep running is when I hear someone saying I motive them to start running or to keep running.
It was a humbling experience when someone who’s been motivated by my runs and has been cheering me on asked me if we could run a half marathon together last weekend. I told her I couldn’t because I had not trained, so I wasn’t in top shape as I had some health issues which slowed down my runs.
After hesitating for a while, we decided to run 6.5k mini-marathon instead, she was overjoyed and when we finished, she told me she always wanted to run with me! What an honour! So heartwarming!
It was a special moment for me as well because she is a young lady who Inspires me a lot by the great things she’s doing for NAFISIKA TRUST in Kenya.
Show her some love by following the link below:
@Vickie, I want to be you when I grow up, you inspire me.
Here are some photos from our run.
