Strength doesn't come from what you can do...it comes from overcoming the things you once thought you couldn't.

As we say here in the south...Ain't that the truth?  lol   I still smile every time I think of now being able to run 1/4 mile without stopping.  It's so much farther than from when I started.  I still remember when I first purchased my treadmill last year.  I could only run for 30 seconds and that was it.  Then I worked it up to 45 seconds, then 1 minute.  Then I started counting the number of "blocks" on my display screen, being able to only run 4 blocks at a time, then 6, then 8, and trying for 10 but failing.  I took the advice of my son and covered the display and just ran to see how far I could go.  I made it to 11 blocks - happy day - it was my farthest so far.  Then came the day I had my display covered and thought "I'll just run until this song is over" and did...and discovered I ran 17 blocks!  That was 1/4 mile, plus 1 more block.  I have been running all of any 400 meter runs (1/4 mile) prescribed ever since, even making it to 500 meters one day last week.  Awesome feeling!  Why am I going on and on about running?  Yep...it's a run day!  :)
