There is within me an invincible summer…

I have just returned from running some intervals along my Almunecar sandy strip of beach… I absolutely loved every minute.

There is something about taking my shoes off that has rekindled in me a true desire to run…
Any sense of ‘have to go running’ has left me, and I look forward to racing along my beach, jumping over the surf when the waves are bigger to reach the end and jog back to run it all over again!
I am taken back to Hope Cove in Devon where we used to holiday as a family.
I was fifteen years old, and I had just started to take my running more seriously… My coach set me barefoot sessions running along the beach ankle deep in the sea…
I totally loved it then and I love it now.

I mentioned to my friend Fi that my new blog and vlog is in preparation for my ‘summer sojourn’, when I plan to run on sandy beaches all over the world and write as I run…

‘It’s always summer where you are Ju’, she said and I was reminded then of the Albert Camus quote that has always spoken to me…

‘And in the midst of winter, I found that there was within me an invincible summer…’

It resonated with me when I first discovered it, as my life’s journey has been about clearing away the ‘winter within’, any energy that is blocked or stuck, so that I might create a life from the truth of who I am. So that the life I dream into being is from my truth and not from my pain.

It is what I teach and how I live….
