What do you look like?
Friday, November 02, 2012
I went for a walk/jog today. I signed up for my first 5k and it's next weekend. It was freezing cold today, with wicked wind. I made a whole bunch of excuses, but I spoke to my friend (who is fitter than I am and has lost 50 lbs herself) and she told me that we ARE RUNNING THE WHOLE 5k. I told her she was mean and I won't be able to keep up! But, being the wonderful friend she is, she re-assured me that I will be fine. She's not a runner either and that when she ran, she does "the old man shuffle with T-Rex arms." I found this so, so funny. And, it really did make me feel better.
So, I laced up my shoes and layered up. And, you know what? I'm so glad I did. I only did 2.5 miles, but that's okay. It's more than I accomplished if I just sat on the couch. But while walking/jogging, I was still laughing to myself about her comment. And, it got me thinking.
You might look like this:
Or maybe like this (this one is me, for sure):
Or, maybe you're like my friend, doin' the old man shuffle:
Whatever you may look like. Whatever your excuse is, just get out there and give it your all! You will be happy you did!
