This has always been my experience. I used this phrase in my book about my first run to chemo: ‘Once again, I experienced the untangling effect of running, of it drawing my thoughts away from the fear and anxiety about what lay ahead into the intensity of the present moment.’ It’s been particularly true during lockdown, and I’m grateful for the runs that untangle me. I put this on social media last week and it seemed to resonate with lots of people, so I wanted a record of it on my neglected blog as well. I’ve enjoyed making prints to send to friends and delivered a few on my run this morning.

  1. Hi Jenny, might I ask if you are the Jenny I knew Baker from Haverhill circa 1970. You and then husband Neville moved up from London with two young children and I’d babysit?
    If yes would be nice to hear from you, If not I apologise for troubling you. Kind regards
