Yes, you read that right. I am not in a happy place right now. I am very down on myself. I don't like myself. I have been working on improving my self-image and body image. not happening since I saw a picture of me completing the half marathon. I look like a beached whale plus a baby whale. I realize there were some things not in my favor. my feet and legs were hurting, not as much as 2 yrs ago though. I was soaking wet from the rain. I was carrying some things (fanny pack and water and medal and food samples). it could also have been that I had a soaking wet shirt that was accentuating some things i don't normally look at.

    thank you, AUNTB63 and KELLI9001, for the encouraging words. I am not usually this down on myself. I have been working on my positive self image. it's just this picture is so unflattering. I know i should be proud of finishing the half marathon, and I am. but, i know if i weighed less i wouldn't have been in so much pain.

    Wait, hold up...COMPLETED A HALF Marathon? emoticon That's awesome and certainly not something I can do yet.

Focus on the accomplished the marathon, you finished...I bet there was a time that you wouldn't have even considered signing up for a marathon. You look marvelous with that medal around your neck! emoticon

Keep up the great work emoticon

    You completed a half marathon......that's wonderful. You have accomplished so much to date....why not look at that instead of being down and negative about yourself. We all have pix we are not too proud of, but not many can say they completed that half marathon in the rain.....chin up and read a couple success stories today....YOU too will be among them. emoticon
