Milestone in my running journey!

This past Saturday, August 23rd was a milestone for me in my running journey.  I ran in the HopeHealth “Move It!” Fun Run/Walk.  Last August this was my very first competitive race.  Even though this year it was only a two miler my pace was considerably faster than last year.


Above are pictures taken at both of the races.  (Left) was this year and (right) was last year.  I don’t know if you can tell much of a difference in my appearance but that is a little over 50 pounds in weight loss.  Do I feel better?  YES, I feel so much better about myself.  I have truly found my love for running.  I like to challenge myself to run harder and longer than before.  I love the message below, because it is so true for me.  I am doing this for myself and no one else.  I have the determination and drive to push myself farther than I have ever gone before.
