Amazing!

Today, well tonight really, I ran for 55 minutes straight.

FIFTY FIVE MINUTES.

I never in my life thought I'd be able to run for almost an hour. Without stopping.

AND LIKE IT.

I feel like a butterfly spreading her wings as she emerges from the chrysalis. Like my body was just in a long sleep and now it's able to reach it's full potential.

This, surely, can not be MY body.

My body is a thick skinned muffin top carrying body. My body that has arms that I am ashamed of. My neck is thick and fat with many rolls.

Or is it?

No. Now my body is strong. My legs can carry me for 5 1/2 miles. RUNNING. Running without stopping. That muffin top is GONE. My arms are strong! My neck is no longer covered in thick skin and fat rolls.

I am truly amazed at what I have done for myself. I have done this. FOR ME.Pin It
