My missus is awesome
« on: August 05, 2017, 07:44:09 PM »

Last year the night we came back from our hols my missus broke her back and was in bed for a month in total agony, today she did a 5 km park run and came 160 out of 220 (considering it's her first go) I think it's incredible.She's gone from bed ridden and unable to do anything for herself to being an athlete (well in my eyes anyway I couldn't do 1km)
She's my hero.

It was worth expanding the tiny text to read your message. Amazing achievement for Mrs Nuts, I am sure you are quite rightly hugely proud of what she has done.  Pass on to her the respect and support of (I would presume) all the members here.

Thanks Peter. Yep I'm so proud of her, she's 58 and came in in 32mins and 26 seconds and was third in her age group, she achieved this from running round the garden every morning, started out just a few mins a day and went up to nearly an hour. My daughter was her inspiration (She's done 2 marathons) she's a very grittsy (or maybe stubborn) lady and never let's anything hold her back, when I met her she was deaf, never let that bother her, but when I suggested trying a hearing aid I will never forget the look on her face when I said can you hear me and she could.
My Pam is a tougher than tough old bird and the kindest and most thoughtful person anyone could wish to meet.

So glad your wife is fully recovered. Running like this, she is an inspiration to us all. :-))
