Unless you’re super nazi about your inbox, I think most of us can relate to having one that is constantly full of irrelevant emails from companies you don’t really care about; products you once bought, services you once liked, far away airport WiFi providers you used once or games you played for a month during your first year on Facebook. That’s my inbox half of the time at least.

It convinces me that I can face and overcome what life throws my way, and that I can build a life myself and for others.

Half marathon training in 1 month
I was so incredibly fortunate to be “man down“ with the nost pathetic of man flu’s from Christmas Eve until January 1st - great..

Here are three things I realized during the first week of the year that people have been telling me for years.
I’m not a runner, nor have I ever had a distinct desire to become one. At least, that was the case up until last Sunday, the 16th. of September 2018 where I ran my first half marathon - also my first time on a distance longer than 15km.
