#R2BC Monday’s #GoodNews

Now, to be fair I don’t usually do Reasons to be Cheerful on Bank Holidays but somehow today seemed right. Great news from Iran as the country continues it’s journey back into the international community, after the shocking scenes of 2009’s elections it’s great to see a record number of women being elected. A long way to go, but progress is progress.
Similarly, having seen a Lebanese band getting banned in Jordan, because of their gay vocalist, have been cleared.

However, as I’m training for another tough mudder my favourite story has to be the Australian runner who ran through a bushfire, when caught during a race; suffered from life threatening burns, and was told she’d never compete again. Well she just completed an Ironman. Amazing triumph over adversity. 🙂
