I'm running in The Great North Run.
I'm running for Ali, to remember him and ensure the memories he gifted us are never forgotten.
I'm running because I believe I will find some personal meaning in the process of taking part in and completing this run. I already know that running helps me face the loss that I wake up to everyday.
I run for Cameron and Arthur because it makes me strong. And they see that despite my sadness, I want to be here with them and plan for the future.
I'm running because every time I put on my trainers and push through the next physical hurdle (because yes there's truly no gain without any pain), I can say to myself "my boy gifted me the determination to keep going".
So many of us that loved Ali want to create, write, journal, start something new, change something about our lives, as a way of remembering him. And we can say, 'I've done this because of Ali'.
Please RUN WITH ME BY GIFTING ME £2 FOR THIS RUN AND IN SUPPORT OF WWF.
