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.
