I was going to blog about lots of stuff today as I have oodles to catch up on, as kids have just gone back to school. But I've just seen on aol that Jane Tomlinson has died, and it's taken the wind out of my sales a bit. I will be back, but probably tomorrow now.
If you have never heard of her, she was a wonderful, amazing, courageous woman who on being told that she had terminal cancer seven years ago took herself off the gym and started training, first for marathons, then for triathlons, Iron Man and the like, raising millions of pounds for charity along the way.
As a rather crap runner and putative triathloner, I have always found her story immensely inspiring.
My heart goes out to her family, particularly her husband who has been an amazingly stalwart support. He must be feeling so bereft.
Bugger. Isn't life crap sometimes?
