To counteract the negativity I was feeling I decided I needed to start looking into future races. If I have a race on my calendar I will be less likely to slack off when i am feeling down. So, I registered for a few small races today. I am looking forward to the Fanny Freezer on February 11 - it was my first ever race when I started running last year and I am looking foward to seeing how I do this year!
Signing up for the Fanny Freezer caused me to start reminiscing, so I was browsing through my old race photos and such on facebook. I came across some pictures that reminded me why I run, even when it isn't easy.
I may have shared some of these in the past, and if so, I am sorry! Just, wanted to get them all in one place on my blog!
My "before" pictures.
|Disney - Feb 2010 (and no, I am not pregnant!)|
|This was after about 4-5 months of dieting|
|This comparison still shocks me|
|The Jan 2012 picture and the Sept 2011 picture above are about the same weight. Wish I could say that I had lost more, but proud to be be maintaining for the most part.|
