If someone was to tell me I would love running, I would roll my eyes. No, not me.
I never, EVER thought I would run more than a couple miles
I never, EVER thought I would run a half marathon
I never, EVER thought I would be able to run a marathon.
Obviously, things change. It starts with a change in your mindset, and reality has a way of falling in line.
Today, something else happend...I ran in the snow, while it was snowing. This is another shocker. Half way through the run, I realized how far I've come.
Even when I started running, I did 90% of it in our home gym, on a treadmill, with controlled temperature, a bathroom, TV's, music...the works. I earned that "posh" title.
This probably isn't a big deal for most of you seasoned runners, but today I felt like a hard-core runner. The runners were far and few between, but we exchanged a wave, a nod, some mutual sense of respect for being out there.
7.12 Miles - 1 hour, 7 minutes - 9:24 average pace. Super annoying wind the last 3 miles.
Am I bragging? I think so. I've spent a lot of my life being critical of myself, and I'm working on being my biggest fan. Self-love is pretty awesome, I highly recommend it.
Thought for the day...
Yep. Life starts when you start pushing your comfort zone. Life has big things in store for all of us....go get it.
Hit me with something your proud of. Go ahead...be your biggest fan!
