Unplugged.
Power down.
The lights are off.

That's how I felt when a big as rotweiller came at us the other night on the run.

Terrified and scared is not how I felt. Powerless is how I felt.
And I hated it.

Nicky was great.

"Please come and get your dog. NOW" she demanded.

"NOW" she said again when they just laughed us off with a "he's okay... Just being friendly".

I just ... Lost power. I stood there, head bowed, shoulders hunched... Waiting for Nicky to fix it.

And she did.

When the adrenaline left I was left with anger. Anger that my power and control had been so quickly taken.

So I got my power back. I ran the hill.

I finished the run.

Plugged in.
Power on.
Lights bright.

Best Run Ever

Best run ever.
And by "run" I mean "sitting on my bum hashing life out with my best friend in the whole world who if it wasn't for her I wouldn't be running and I can't believe she can't because she's busted her archilles".  That's what I mean by run.  We didn't.  But we did.

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.

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.
