I run, and I am not fast, so this quote jumped right out at me! Love it!

This was a perfect reminder for me! I am not the numbers either on the scale or on the clock. I am the person working on being healthy!

I need to remember this! I sometimes feel that I am not a "real" runner because i'm not fast. This reminds me that it doesn't matter how fast I run, just that I run!

My Nustep machine keeps track of miles for me and also my 10,000 steps so I chose one or the other every other day.

I'm not a runner but I used to walk with a group of ladies who did nothing but complain. They swore they exceeded the mile mark a long time ago so I had my husband meet us in his truck and mark off a mile and wait there till we met him. From then on there were no more moaning and groaning and I was not there favorite person..

My miles are slow but at least I am faster than those sitting on the couch!!

I have a five mile a day goal. Normally i accomplish that at work. even though its over 8 hours, getting home and seeing the mileage feels awesome. Love this meme

A mile is a mile is a mile is a mile.
