Found it!

Found it!

light switch

I spent the summer looking for my switch — just couldn’t make my body run without walking breaks. Then Friday, I ran 3 miles – s.t.r.a.i.g.h.t.   And today, 1.5 miles – s.t.r.a.i.g.h.t.  No breaks.  No walking.  And today — my run included my nemesis — the H.I.L.L.     Ohhh, with every step, I could feel my core muscles seizing up — the “I’m about to vomit” feeling is juuuuust inches away.  But I found my switch again.

Then it dawned on me — I was looking for my switch in my body.  All this time, I was looking in the wrong place.   Because the switch…is in my head.

I can turn it on whenever I want.  I just need to want it badly enough!

Ciao for now….Diane

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!
