I haven't ran since I was in High School and I came across these sayings in GRANDMABEAST63 sparkpage and stoled them. I just had to have them:

Also inspired by KARVY09, DASH, RAVENSONG37, CALIKA, GET2LIVE, CAROLYN1213 & others:

"you are not too heavy to run"

"If you run, you are a runner"

    Hi there emoticon Sorry for taking so long to respond, life is just crazy busy! Did you get your foot x-ray yet? I know it is so hard to have any injury and have to exercise with pain. I hope you are having a good week! Thinking about you! emoticon emoticon

    Just stopping by your Spark Page to show some emoticon and to offer positive support. While on your weight loss journey, never give up. Believe in yourself and choose to shine despite how you may feel at that very moment. You may not be there yet, but you are closer than you was yesterday! Have a blessed and productive weekend!

    It's MOTIVATIONAL MONDAY! Are you motivated yet? I sure hope so. Ships don't sink because of the water around them; ships sink because of the water that gets in them. Don't let what's happening around you get inside you and weigh you down. Have a blessed and productive day!
