This is so true. I think its part of what's great about being a 'runner.' It's not like being a trobone player, where you have to be pretty good to tell people you are one. If you go running today, you are a runner.
1 pound - way puts things into perspective! I've lost 23 pounds, most of which i lost last year. I have only lost a couple more pounds recently but I have been holding at my lowest weight in years. Now to get another 15 pounds off of me!
