Running is my favorite type of exercise... Really?

I am so proud of this picture.  This picture shows a girl who is giving 110% of herself and is constantly pushing her own limits.

Several months ago, I never used my treadmill.  Eight weeks ago, I started using my treadmill three to four days a week.  Now, I use it every day.  That in itself is a major accomplishment for me. However, I have recently been breaking all of my own records.  Today, I ran three miles in 42 minutes... That means that I ran 14 minute miles.  When I started interval running/walking, my mile was over 16 minutes.  I hardly recognize the person I was before this journey.

As you see below, I am by NO means perfect.  My exercise schedule is not flawless and there are some days when I push myself harder than others.  HOWEVER, as you can see below, I have not given up.  I am continuously pushing forward, getting more miles under my belt.

Here is my record of miles logged!  I am always striving to do more!

I am nowhere near the perfect runner.  I am nowhere near the perfect anything.  But at this point in my life, I can truthfully say I am happy.  I'm happy with what I'm accomplishing and I'm happy with my life.  The future has never looked so bright!
