I did RED January and here's what I learnt:
- January is a long brutal month so getting outside is a prerequisite to survive it.
- Most of the time you'll have to run in the dark but you'll love it anyway - Be Safe, Be Seen!
- You get braver and end up going to Park Run for a strong finish, your limbs hate you but your mind loves you.

I'm training for a half marathon as you know so I made it through January by Walking, Running, Pilates, Yoga & Rowing.
To wrap up, doing RED January meant that I started the year so low, lacking confidence in everything about myself. I'm talking everything. I slowly built myself up until the voices that were a roaring, wild ocean became barely audible. Historically, I would've had a horrendous January, and by the first week of February, I'd be back on my medication. Not this year. I still lack direction but I'm okay with it. After all we are all on a journey to discover our purpose. I'll get there as will you!
