Running for my mind since 2017

Welcome to Run4YourMind! I’m on a mission to raise awareness, support, motivate and inspire others struggling with mental illness to better themselves through the power of running.

I myself am a long term sufferer of severe OCD, Anxiety and Depression and have been for around 10 years. My main issue being intrusive, negative thoughts that take control of my mind and make it very difficult to focus on general day to day things. This results in me feeling incredibly anxious, confused and at times scared. Struggling with this on a daily basis is extremely draining and causes me to spiral into a sad state of depression.

I turned to running on the 20th July 2017 and have not looked back. The feeling I get after a run is irreplaceable.  Yes, it doesn’t last long but when you feel like I do, you live for the moment and for that moment everything’s ‘OK’.

I hope through documenting my journey it will help me understand myself better and help others a long the way.
