My physiotherapist called me an athlete! AND HE WASN’T JOKING! I rang my husband in disbelief because I still have a lot of weight to lose. I’m nowhere near peaking with my fitness. Yet, my physio recognised something in me I have not seen.
He listened to me explain how my injury prevented me from doing my second parkrun. How devastated I was. He gave me the nod for parkrun this weekend. He also offered to strap my foot on Friday morning for a nominal fee.
So yes I am an athlete. I am not just talking the talking I’m walking the walk.
