Don't compare yourself to others
Hello Blog World! As you could see from my post below I signed up for a half marathon! For the past few weeks I had been down about my running and working out in general. It probably all started when I ran a 5k with a bunch of hard core runners. All the girls were super thin and everyone was talking about what times they wanted. I just wanted to run the whole time. Then the run was hot and I could barely breathe. I began to feel sorry for myself. The old bad thoughts began to poison my mind. "You can't do this," "Running sucks," "You will never be able to run a 5k in less than 30 minutes, why are you even trying." So I put these pictures up to remind myself. "Wendy you look a hell of a lot better now that you are a runner (ALSO THANK YOU WEIGHT WATCHERS) AND you are much happier." A person can only be the best version of themselves. I may never be able to run a 5k in less than 30 minutes. I may never get to that 150 pounds that I once tried to achieve. I can though continue to be the healthiest best version of myself.
