Everyone has a something. Something that they're holding on to or hiding. Or something that is causing great sorrow or pain. Everyone does. Mostly we don't know. Mostly the masks go on first thing in the morning and we all blend in and no one would ever know.

But everyone has something.

If you have a something ... And for what ever reason you've chosen to go it alone... You should run. Really. I know it seems ridiculous that going for a run could do any good ... But it does.

Cos it's never just a run. There's choosing a goal or an event, then finding the training schedule, then sorting out your week to fit in the runs. Then there are the showers and the deep sleeps and tight hamstrings and chatter with your mates about your running and choosing new running shoes and washing your running gear. And then there's moaning about shin splints and running in the rain and wearing out your sports bra and finding the perfect running mix.

And then there's the run.

The glorious run.

Run. Your something will still be there. But it won't define you.

I hate my body.

Urgh. I hate my body.  I went to yoga tonight.  Twisting and turning my flabby and floppy and wobbly bits.  I hate my body. 
Wait. 
Enough. 
I love my body.
And just like that... In the middle of camel pose... Everything changed. I love my body. And I'm gonna start treating it with the respect it deserves. 
I love my body. 
For the very first time in my life ... I love my body. I've hated my body for so long now. I've been treating it like it's a useless failure that lets me down and embarrasses me constantly. 
My body ... I'm so sorry. 
Tomorrow I'll stand tall. I'll make no excuses. I'll be grateful. 
I. Love. My. Body. 

Read this if you're about to give up...

If you are struggling to stay on track know this... You are so close. So close to success. So close. You just can't see it. That's why it feels so far away.
If I told you that I could see it and it looks amazing and it was just around that corner you would keep going. You wouldn't stop.

I know you can't see it ... But it's so close. Don't give up now.

It really is just around the corner.

You're missing out.

I poured this Post Run Pinot just before I headed out the door.  So when the run got tough.... And it did... I dreamed of my Post Run Pinot.  Home now... And it's still sitting there... Waiting.  I'll have my shower then wash down a big feed with it.  Some might say... Why not just pour the wine and skip the run bit? To that I would say... You clearly haven't tasted Post Run Pinot.  And ... You are missing out.
