|Feeling like a badass after this mornings 5.5 mile run!|
Get up! You can do it! Yes YOU can do it!! There was a time when I thought I wouldn't do it, a time when running for just 1 minute took my breath away and I would go home and cry, or end up eating a tons of crap because I felt sorry for myself.
In the beginning I was scared to start running, I'd see all these runners run by me and I'd feel shy to start running, what would they think? Surely they would laugh at the girl that runs for 1 minute and than has to walk to catch her breath?!? I felt intimidated and it took me months before I could get over feeling scared and started running slowly. It felt good to run slowly and realize that no one was laughing at me or even paying attention. You see, everyone is out there running for a reason! Whether it's to get away from themselves, set a personal record or just for the feeling that running gives you.
It's taken me months to get here, to the point where I'm at. I can run for more than a mile without stopping, slowly but surely it's happening and it's all due to determination, willpower and believing in change. Every thing that's worth it is worth working hard for, keep going no matter how slow you think your going, your always going faster than that person sitting on the couch!
Yes, it will take time but I promise you that if you keep on working hard it will all pay off in the end!
I've already lost 16 lbs and am training for my 1st half marathon in April!
So yes YOU can do it! YOU can! Just believe in yourself!!!
