Kasha’s 1st half marathon challenge in memory of mum and dad and Dave Farrar Sponsorship Page
Year 2018 was a year of loss. Loss of my mum and dad and loss of a good friend. Loss of hope. Sea of tears, depression, too much alcohol and self-harming. Grieving and asking same questions over and over again. Why them? Why me? WHY…?
Year 2019 was a year of realisation, acceptance and bereavement. More tears, more alcohol, therapy sessions and medication. Mourning and asking same questions over and over again. When is it gonna get easier? When will I live again? WHEN…?
In June 2019 I met a friend, who was my inspiration for quite some time. A friend, who encouraged me to cut down on alcohol, be kind to myself and… start running!
In August I run my first 5k ever. In September I run a 5k leg in a Jersey Marathon Relay. In October I run 13k in Durell Dash raising funds for Jersey Gorillas. I got a ‘running bug’! I joined Jersey Girls Run and kept on running for the remainder of the year.
Year 2020 is a year of change and positive impact. Year of recovery, inner peace and mental health. In Chinese calendar – a year of a mental rat, so… let’s go racing!
My biggest goal of this year is to complete half marathon on 29th March but more importantly to raise £500 for Jersey Hospice in memory of my mum and dad and Dave Farrar, who left us to soon.
Please be generous in your donations. Jersey Hospice is not just about palliative care and dying but also quality of life at the end of life and helping those coming to terms with death of a relative or friend.
Let this be your motto for 2020:
“IF NOT NOW THEN WHEN!”
