#TransformationTuesday for two years straight my sister @komfortzonesoaps kept sending me emails about a running series in Westport Ct. and for two years I kept pushing it off-yeah yeah sounds great.
One day outta the blue I grabbed a pair of @reebok zigzag from under my bed 🛏 and went for a run around the block. I swear I spent more time stretching than I did running my legs were on fire 🔥 and itching. Idk why🤔
I was psyched I called Yvonne to tell about my accomplishment, I went for a run. Oh yeah, how far did you go? I made it around the block, you could hear crickets on the other end of the phone-I think she was trying to keep from laughing. 🤷🏾♂️ I eventually did the Westport races the pic on the left was from 2010 when I was over 200lbs and the only running I did was to get out of the rain or to CVS for @haagendazs_us Butter Pecan when it was on sale.
The pic on the right is from this year. It doesn’t matter where you are currently in process, everyone is at a different stage if you’re trying to get someone to pursue a healthy lifestyle be patient with them-all you can do is model the behavior.
I can see the improvement over the years it certainly didn’t come over night. I eventually worked up to the marathon with suggestions from two friends one white and the other Hispanic - I know it sounds like the introduction to a bad joke but, it’s true. @stball74 and @councilorcastro convinced that it wouldn’t be that bad just download a plan, trust me it was bad 5hrs:25min I crossed the finish line 🏁 in 2012 during the Hartford Marathon.
What I’ve learned about myself from that experience I wouldn’t trade. -
