I Got The Eye of The Neon Tiger
I did it. I proved to myself that I can do whatever I put my mind to. Time doesn’t matter. What does matter is that I achieved something I never dreamed I could. It seems weird to have people congratulate you on something that people do all the time. I have a lot of friends who are runners and run this distance (or further) on the regular. What I have to keep telling myself is that this is huge because of who I used to be. This accomplishment is huge because I never doubted I could do it and I never gave up. When it seemed impossible and the pain was real, I kept going. Old Sarah would have thrown in the towel.
I really hope I can inspire you, dear reader, to chase something you think impossible. I’m still overweight, I’m not an avid runner and I’m not very fast but I completed a 10K. I don’t have tolerance for excuses or hearing “I can’t.” You’re talking to a girl who has lost 90 pounds and overcome a heck of a lot this last year. You have to believe in yourself and commit to the process. Stay focused, stay positive and stay consistent. You’ll not only be unstoppable but you’ll see results, too.
I’ve always been a neon tiger but now I've earned my stripes!
