Inspiration Mondays: My Second Life

A couple of years ago, while waiting for a flight, I stopped in at an airport magazine stand and bought a copy of Runner's World. I was not a runner. I'm still not a runner.

In it was an article about this man:

I still have this magazine. I pull it out when I'm feeling sorry for myself. It helps to remind me that things aren't as bad as they could be.

I'm thinking seriously about doing a 10k run in September. I'm sitting here, thinking about the pain, about the hard work, and I'm afraid of it. But... I'm trying to figure out how to change myself to be healthier, and to overcome my past, a life of living with a heavy body and a brain full of fear.

So, this guy gave himself a second life. Maybe I can, too...

You're right. I have to stop telling myself that I can't do it. Thanks for always cheering me on!
