Your Body Is A Gift

It was like I had a major light bulb moment. I mean for the last 6 years, weight loss has always been a goal along with getting more physically fit and stronger. And I've heard people say that you only have one body, and you need to take care of it blah blah blah...

But it's like I felt this on a personal level - like WAKE UP GIRL! You have ONE BODY. It's YOUR responsibility to take care of the GIFT that you have been given. I experienced this while I was in bed with pain in both of my feet. My right foot was throbbing from the arthritis, and my left foot was in as much pain from my plantar fasciitis.

First Double Digit Dreadmill Run

I had sent a running buddy a text earlier and she text me back and told me to do either 9 or 11 miles for 9/11. I got it in my head to do 11 since I needed to run 2 hours today.

I pushed the last mile a little too fast but I just wanted off!

But Long Run completed for the day!
