Slow progress…..IS progress

Slow progress…..IS progress

I saw this picture come across my Facebook a few days ago — and in the past few days, it has come to mean the world to me.  

Yesterday, I wanted to run FAST, and I ran only half of the 5 miles.  Just couldn’t do it.  Today, I was patient, and I took it slow — and I ran every inch of the SAME 5 miles.  Sometimes we Race to Failure, rather than letting Success Slowly Build Within Us.  LOVED, LOVED, LOVED learning this lesson this week.

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!
