So I just wanted to say I am dedicating this race to my good friend Dan, who sadly took his own life last week. I love and miss you brother. I will spend a lot of this time remembering you and smiling at the fond times we had together… although... I am still trying to forget that Macau pool party you dragged me to…
I can only hope you are resting in peace my man.
This is for you x

Why am I here AGAIN.. the freezer door opens with ease, I lean inside knowing what I want, knowing exactly where it is. I grab it, its cold as ice, my mouth starts to melt, pupils dilate with excitement. I move back to the lounge room. Succession is on the TV, my wine glass is full, I flip open the lid.. peel back the protective cover and I am ready ‘Ben and Jerrys chunky monkey’ is staring at me. My spoon already being daggered towards to tub but then I look down and see Sebby, the nickname Mai had given to my ever a’round’ belly. I start to panic, I know where my mind is going. I aggressively drive my spoon into the tub devouring as much of the chunky delight my mouth will hold. I am having one of my moments. Its all over. I can feel a shift, I cant eat anymore. I finish off my wine, I realise its time. Sebby has been part of my life for too long. Its time for change. Its time to get running.
