mind over matter

mind over matter

What is in your mind…..is ALL that matters!


For years it was believed that man could not run the 4-min mile. In fact, it was believed to be dangerous to even try. Until Bannister. Bannister won in 3:58.8 to Landy’s 3:59.6, the first time two men in one race had broken 4 minutes. By the end of 1957, 16 runners had logged sub-4-minute miles.

Diane believed for decades that she could not make goal. Felt (sometimes) it was even ridiculous to try. But…what if…she just stopped listening to all the chatter…and just tried (REALLY TRIED) to do something new.

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!
