When I saw the theme for the Gallery this week is sport my first thought was to post the pictures I took at the Olympic Cycling Time Trials last week, but then I decided I would leave the Olympics to others and I would post these pictures of my husband running
My OH has no sight at all, but it doesn’t stop him doing anything. I met him 17 years ago on a sailing holiday, we got on so well because we both enjoyed ski-ing and cycling and went on many different activity holidays together before the children were born.
D is an awesome ski-er. He is fearless and can ski black runs!
He did his first 10K run about 5 years ago and since then he’s been hooked. He runs regularly at our local 5k park-run and is running his 3rd half marathon in October.
He ran a personal best time for 5000m and was over the moon to run it in under 20 minutes. Not only did he win the race, but he was awarded the trophy for Senior Men for achieving the time.
Sport is something that everyone can take part in if they have the right opportunities. Never under-estimate what you or someone else may be able to do.
