Quoting Marilyn Monroe, I said it before and I’ll no doubt say it again, but “Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.” Doggone it if that ain’t true.
I must give them partial credit; the other I will give to myself. Yesterday, I ran longer than I EVER have.
I ran 5 miles. A personal best.
This is friggin’ HUGE for me. I just couldn’t stop. Didn’t feel like stopping. No pain at all. I was like Forrest Gump.
“Now you wouldn’t believe me if I told you, but I could run like the wind blows. From that day on, if I was going somewhere, I was running!” –Forrest Gump
This clip says it all for me. I wasn’t the Forrest running across America with all of those joiners running behind him. No–not yet. Instead, I was the young Forrest, just beginning his journey–realizing that he really could run, when he had to. Legs getting stronger, not failing him when he needed them the most, outrunning the bullies chasing from behind. Breaking free of the restraints that had been holding him back. And once he realized he could, he did, and he just kept going.
On that 5 miler, I was doing the same.
I must make it a point to continue the same mentality in my life. <– In my next post, I’ll pick up here.
But for now…on to something tasty!
I was super healthy with my meals yesterday. Yay for clean eating! Anyhoo, while on Pinterest, I saw the most delicious recipe for Roasted Broccoli with Smashed Garlic.
How about you…any personal bests lately?
