And another year...

Friday, May 07, 2010

I think this is the first birthday in a long time that I can actually say that I've completely accomplished a goal that was not an easy one for me. I started running just a few months ago and ran my first race last week. I've signed up for another in June and am now officially addicted to running. It's not something I would have ever thought could come out of my mouthl I've always been one of the people who say, "Oh, I hate running!" But here I am. And I am also one of those people who tends to get 3/4 of the way to her goal then tell myself, "That's good enough." So actually signing up for a race and doing it was big. I'd signed up for two in the past and ended up chickening out because I hadn't prepared for it.

I'm not near my goal weight yet, or my goal fitness, but on this birthday I am proud to say that I'm on my way. It's so incredible to know that I AM strong enough and determined enough! That's another thing I never thought I'd ever say. Believing in myself has always been the biggest challenge. But not anymore. I've seen what I can do when I decide I can...this time next year...I'll have many other accomplished goals to list that I have succeeded at.

    Get outta my head! LOL I could have written this blog.

    Nice reflecting, here on your birthday, of some great, positive changes you are working toward. I am happy for you that you're going for your goals and you've run one race so far! The weight and fitness goals will follow suit. Just KOKO (keep on keeping on) and you will get there! emoticon
