Races of 2011-Nothing is Impossible

I ran 3 races in 2011.  I ran my first ever half marathons, the American Fork Half and the Provo Halloween Half and one 5k.  I even ran them like a real runner with good times barely over 2 hours (2:05 and 2:01)! (They did have some good down hill assist with the good timing.)  My 5 K run was several minutes faster than my previous time too!  Not bad for a woman who only started running in May of 2010! AND was weighing in at 390 pounds just 2 years before!!!

Right now I’m stuck inside without a working treadmill and I long to run!  I know many who run no matter what the weather or temperature but my lungs just don’t like the cold air.  These pictures brought a smile to my face reminding me of how capable my body is of things a I once never believed were possible.

Never say it is IMPOSSIBLE!
Change it to I’M POSSIBLE!

After posting this today I found this actual quote that I didn’t even know existed out there:

impossible

  2. Love that quote (and Audrey Hepburn), and this post. I've always wanted to run a 5k. Maybe this year I will. :)
