“I wanted so very much to be a size extra small but then I remembered my entire soul and vast personality couldn’t fit into that. I have too much to offer to be squeezed into a size. I am more than a size, number, and label. I am me.”—
“I run because if I didn’t, I’d be sluggish and glum and spend too much time on the couch. I run to breathe the fresh air. I run to explore. I run to escape the ordinary. I run… to savor the trip along the way. Life becomes a little more vibrant, a little more intense. I like that.”—Dean Karnazes, “Ultramarathon Man: Confessions of an All-Night Runner” (via runningonoatmeal)
In 6 months I will NOT look like all those girls with shorts and a bikini top on. I will, however, look like myself, but a healthier version. My body type is different than those girls. My curves wont be the same, any indents in my stomach won't look the same. Nothing will look the same except for the smile on my face. In 6 months I will be a better, healthier me.
