Shaggy v Gazelle
They will be sorting out a donation to Shaggy's running club. If anyone would like to join in, PM Minni.
I just can't believe it. How can you one day be so full of life and plans for the future and positive attitude and then the next day be gone.
Oh no i can't believe it someone so fit and healthy like Shaggy.
Gazelle, I hope you are ok.
Words can not express how I am feeling at this moment, I’m numb and shocked. I have only known Shaggy for 8 months and in that short period of time he has taught me so much, not just about running but also about myself. He was so supportive of everyone and has left a great impression on so many people that he has left behind. He will be truly missed, my thoughts go out to his Wife and Son.
Big hugs, Gazelle. And to eveyone
Cheers Minni, I think we are all in shock the news hasn't sunk in yet. Please let me know if I can help in anyway.
thanks Minni, me too, donations or any help count me in.
Reduced me to tears when hearing this last night, even a bit now, so can imagine the effect on Gazelle. As for Shaggy's family and friends, my heart goes out to them.
All the progress I've made in the last 6-7 months wouldn't have happened without Shaggy's help. Getting under 3:30 in May without all the advice and pep talk - no chance. I was running & talking to someone proudly the other day about our "coach" here and his advice. That was Shaggy.
Very sad news. Just so shocked..
just popping over from the other sub 3:30 thread... am in shock, like all of you.Crying at the mo Whoever sets something up please count me in for a donation. Dunno what to do or say otherwise
I think we're all lost for words, Chick.
I think I've PM'd everyone about donations. If you haven't received it let me know.
Only just heard. Sad, sad news. He was a real inspiration.
Bit lost for words really. Thoughts and prayers are very much with his family and friends.
Sorry I have been quiet and havn't posted, it's still a bit raw for me to handle My head just can't get around the circumstances. I could understand if it was a traffic accident/long term illness, but to be healthy and active and it just happen.....
I have just got back from an emotional 5mile run, I put some upbeat music on shuffle to listen to when The Military Wife's song came on( we were both ex forces) tears were streaming down my face then all of a sudden the song stopped and changed, quite spooky!
FRTC Club race is still on, go and do it for Shaggy and the thread
((Gazelle)). Spooky indeed. I'm sure Shaggy would want us to keep on running and keep on posting on here so let's keep the thread going.
FRTC- go for it indeed and be awesome as always!
Yep, he would also want us to keep supporting each other too. Hugs to everyone, well done on the 5 miler, Gazelle, and FRTC go smash it
Hmm, what should I do today....? Oh I know, what about a spin class and some core for a change
Feel very very deflated after the highs of Sundays 10k, seems a long time ago now and not important.
One little thing, about 3 miles, I started mentally repeating to myself, Make, Every, Stride, Count.. then just Every, Stride Count. Phrase now seems very true.
May have something to post later. Was something I wanted Shaggy to see.
Thanks for letting me know FRC what a terrible shock it is.
Just popping by to offer my condolencesI only had a few brief conversations with Shaggy whilst organising the Forum Six but I am more than aware of the effect that he has had on all of you involved in these threadsI hope his legacy lives on
