defeat sux

i just couldn’t do it.  i ran 11 miles, and then walked the rest.  fighting back the tears, feeling really defeated.  I don’t know what’s wrong.  I have to figure it out.  But not today.  Today my emotions are running amuck – and I just feel super sad.


About Diane

Ciao! My name is Diane. I'm a wife, a mom, a working professional, and a Weight Watcher from New Jersey. I started blogging in 2011, at 45 years old, when I was training for my first Half Marathon at Rutgers on April 22, 2012. Since then, I've lost 80 pounds, completed my Half Marathon goal and gone on to train for and run my very first Full Marathon. On Jan 13, 2013, I ran the Disney Marathon in Orlando, Fl! What an incredible day. As the saying goes -- "The person who starts the race is not the same person who finishes the race." I am forever changed! So now we move on to the next phase of this journey! Come along. We're in this together!! Ciao for now!

  1. ahhh, sweet foot bath, hot shower, fruit cocktail and coffee. these are the ingredients of a really wonderful self reflective Sunday. humbled? maybe. defeated? baloney. rest it off. pamper yourself. reboot. restart tomorrow. buddhists say: life is suffering. You lived today, lived more than most everyone else on the planet. breathe deeply. relax. stop and enjoy.

    • You are not defeated…look at what you have become. If you are defeated I can’t even say where that puts my lazy ass these days!! Chin up…you are a runner!! One bad day (even 20 bad days) won’t erase what you have done and become!! xo
