Happiness starts now

I’m not exactly winning races, but that’s not why I do. I have always had this mindset that I need to lose 40 lbs to be skinny and lean enough to run fast. Well, instead of being dissatisfied with not being able to achieve my possibly unachieavle and lofty goal, I am deciding to be content and happy with where I am right now. This will allow me to enjoy the journey, taking one day at a time and enjoying each day as I go.
Comparison is the thief of joy. I’d rather train on my own, experience the true joy and euphoria of movement than find myself feeling like I’m not good enough when I compare myself to those I look up to who are at a level I am striving for. I’m excited to train hard and push my body further than I ever have. I am a slow runner but that’s okay. That’s where I am right now. I have never had a full year where I have been consistent in my training and it is unrealistic to expect otherwise of my body.
