Where does one start?
Tina Turner, a global, adored icon is gone, and we are all, collectively, diminished by her death.
This amazing woman was a force of life, a fabulous singer and a woman who inspired millions of people.
Her beyond iconic song “Simply the best” has been on my playlist for years. In fact, it’s on all of my running playlists – because, dear reader, I have a 10k playlist, a HM playlist, and a marathon playlist, and Simply the Best makes the cut on all of them 🙂
I went for a very slow 7km run this morning, my first run in weeks – I was climbing in Nepal in Aril/May and before that had focused on walking and strength, worried that I might trip and fall while running on the uneven track in my local park…all of which is to say that today I speed-walked and ran in the park, with Tina Turner playing non-stop.
And I felt very sad, although grateful that her amazing voice lives on.
God speed, you wonderful woman.
