Sometimes going for a run throws up unexpected obstacles. In this case I should have expected it. A surge of sustained heavy rain before my cross-country run left many a field crossing looking like this. The ditch below this waterline is about 2 feet deep at the center and don’t be fooled by that handy looking plank of wood either – when I stepped on it my foot was instantly submerged into the murky brown water! I should have known better as this plank is usually further to the left but the water surge down the stream it crosses had been strong enough to move it. I’ll use this experience as a metaphore for how I want to live my life; I’ll come up against obstacles and sometimes you have to get a bit dirty to overcome them but the gain is worth it.
