I saw this the other day, and it really hit home.
I am pretty honest about my insecurities on here.
I try to stay positive about my my body in front of my girls. I am careful not to say negative things about how I look or feel physically. But I have my days.
Since I started running, I have fewer of those days.
I never imagined my body could run mile after mile. That I could set goals and then crush them. That I would see and feel my body becoming stronger.
I still have my days when nothing "fits" and there are a dozen things I want to change about my body. But when I start obsessing about something I want to change, simply going for a run helps me find a little perspective, helps me remember some of the things I like about my body and reminds me that I have power to improve many of the things I do want to change.
