I used to think I could never run! I am over 40, have had 2 kids, have a really bad back, and horrible joints. My sister inspired me because she started running 5 years ago and looks amazing. I ran through the pain and started at my own pace. I am up to 12 miles a week and climbing. ANYONE can do it!! Just take your time an believe in yourself!
I had a dr's appt today with a runner. She told me to stop paying attention to the scale and pay attention to how I feel; keep running and my body will change in time. She said I had a nice, slow heartbeat like a runner. BEST EFFING FEELING IN THE WORLD.
When embarking on a fitness plan, my first goal is to look good in my clothes and my subsequent goal is to look fab w/out my clothes. Progress and NOT perfection has always been my motto as it pertains to exercise and everything else!!! One love.
