Here is a picture of me. Smiley and sweaty in a place a definitely didn’t see myself even 6 months ago. If you’ve been around me lately you know I’m running a 50k (because I talk a lot about running). Today I did a thing I had never done before. I ran 17 miles and over 2500 feet of elevation on trails. .
I remember being told that I wasn’t built “like a runner” when I was younger. If you knew me in college, you probably know I always struggled to pass the running portions of my fitness tests. I don’t know when I stopped believing in my ability, but running became mental hurdle for me. I was terrified and anytime I stepped onto a track my heart would race before I even took a step. I’m posting this picture because I’m proud of how far my legs carried me today and that makes me smile.  It feels good to take some power back and choose to run for pleasure. It feels good to watch myself grow in this unexpected way where I can see clear and measurable progress. .
Before this journey I often said things like “yea, but I’m not a runner.” A word to everyone who needs to hear it (including myself): If you run - whether you are fast or slow; if you run 1 mile or 100 - You are a runner. .
TLDR: Running scared me but I tried it anyway and I like it. Everyone who runs is a runner. .
