If it wasn't nearly time for bed, I'd be inspired to run after reading this post! I've fallen off of the running wagon these last few weeks and after reading this I want to hop back on!

Yes, Terry, that's it! How our perception changes. Very well put - thanks for stopping by.

And thank you, everyone, for your words of support. This is one of the great things about blogging. When I am feeling discouraged, I can read here about this day and the comments you've left and feel motivated. My most favorite compliment is that I might have helped someone else feel inspired to do something they didn't think they could, be it physical or otherwise.


Congratulations! What a great accomplishment!

Running really makes you think about how we perceive things. Non-Runners see 6 miles as some magical distance that is so untouchable that it's not possible to reach that far. And it isn't to just go out the door and try to run 6 miles. You start out slow and you get the little victories. But we all have a different running story... now, you've set a PR for your (essential) 10k distance. But perception wise it goes from "OMG, I have to run 6 miles" to "Hey, it's just 6 miles" and it isn't that the distance has changed, WE have changed.

great work on your accomplishment!

Wow. That is amazing.

You are amazing.


Very impressed!! Good for you :)
I really must go out for a walk!


Lori-that is great! I am so proud of you and you should be proud of yourself. I always say that I work out not to lose weight but more for my mind/sanity!


You rock! Really, you so impress me.


You are amazing!

And thanks for reminding me to focus on what I HAVE done instead of on what I haven't.


I'm thinking about running up and down my stairs a few dozen times in lieu of buying a piece of exercise equipment. I already know I won't do the gym thing and the running thing will never happen for me...so, I'm thinking the stairs.

Meanwhile, you are awesome!!!

Good for you! This inspired me to get my pregnant butt on my treadmill for a walk this weekend.
