Fake It Until You Make It!

This Sparked Me!

I know this is so cliche', but it is so true!! If you want to be a runner, then go out and pretend you are a runner! Even if you can only run a few steps... just pretend during those few paces that you are a runner! Soon enough, you'll be running further than you ever thought you could!! Maybe you'll even become a runner! I know this works, I've spent the past 6 months "faking it" and now I'm ready to run my first half marathon in about 2 weeks. I've made it!!
