In the first three miles, which are always the hardest, I was twice confronted with a gaggle of fast, fit, tan twenty-somethings. In comparison, I felt somehow that I wasn't a real runner and that I didn't deserve the hydration pack on my back, even though I logged 12 miles today. I don't look like a runner even when I run, which by definition qualifies me as one. In light of yesterday's #miniepiphany I took the opportunity to try and change my perspective.  Take this tree - it will never be a shiny, beautiful aspen. It will never know the smooth, white bark of a birch. It can grow and adapt, but there are ways in which it can never change. We admire it for its unique traits that are no more or less tree-like than another tree. We stand in awe at trees like this when they've endured a fire or lightening and continue to thrive. We respect them as they get older. We do not judge trees because they are different than the trees we see in magazines. We do not consider that this tree is not a real tree because it does not have flat, broad, deciduous leaves. It has been said that comparison is the thief of joy. Turns out it's the thief of life force and energy. Each time I sat in harsh judgement or had the routine cruel thoughts about myself, I had less physical energy to run and felt depleted. The negative self talk steals your physical energy and leaves you with less life force to go out and live, make a positive impact, and do the things you love, like running trails.  #seenonmyrun #bodyimage #irunthisbody #runningmakesmearunner #trailrunning #trainingformoab #tree  Miles 12

#miniepiphany #soundsobvious but I don't like having to be one thing or one person. I like #vintage #nature #geekery #food and #music - and that's ok โ˜บ๏ธ #selfdiscovery #whoami #cheesyhastags ๐Ÿ˜
Has anyone ever wondered why the traffic light walk symbols are only ever of men? Do women not walk on the streets also? #Everydaysexism #trafficlightsAreSexist #lightbulbMoment #miniEpiphany #thoughtoftheday
Had to ask myself...if someone has no interest in listening to you, why are you talking?  #hmmm #goodquestionself #miniepiphany ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
Had a talk with my brother before I dropped him off at work and it got me thinking why we go to lifetime so much I realized that the gym is more than just working out , it's more to me , it's about getting better at what I do , it's about feeling better , looking better , being better , it takes my mind off of literally anything that's bugging me at the moment and gets me into a zen mindset , i do this everyday for myself and to create the best possible person I can be in EVERY aspect , the gym to me is simply life and I love every second of it and that's why I'm always there and why I'll continue to be there . #gymislife #nootherlove #stressfree #mindandbody #motivation #onedayatatime #goodvibes #lifesgood #miniepiphany
