The road will forgive you. 

There is SO much written about how to get back in to running if you've lost your drive for it. Experts offer advice like ... Sleeping in your running gear, or ... Make a new playlist for your iPod. 

But the experts have missed the point.

There is a reason you've turned your back on the road.  Something triggered it. Grief, guilt, failure, shame, anger, resentment. Those things on that list... They're too big. How could we possibly forgive or how could we possibly ask for forgiveness? So we assume the road won't. 

The road will. 

Trust me. I've been there. If you've turned your back on the road... Chances are you've turned your back on you. That's not what God had planned for you. And He hasn't turned his back. 

Get your stinkin shoes on. And run. The road will forgive you.

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. 
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.
