@lamarathon March 18, 2018 , weighing in at 242 lbs and having my toughest marathon training season ever. Lots of talk about mental health these days but not sure people really understand how it affects the overall body, self perception and self worth. I mean do you really wake up and find yourself having gained over 70 lbs and not have realized it. Well in a sense sometimes you do. To tell you the personal struggles I’ve dealt with quietly would take an even longer 10 post. Here’s where I am today having lost some of those added lbs since this LA marathon finish and mentally stronger. I’m not comparing myself to the next runner next to me or even really to my old self. This is where I’m at and $u&k I’m not looking back just moving forward.
So point of this post sometimes you have to go through some tough shit to figure out where your right path is. Sometimes you get to be surrounded by some awesome people while doing it . LA Marathon was not easy on my body because of my personal fitness but mentally it brought me back to life. It made me fall in love with the city all over again and reminded me of some pretty awesome people I get to share my journey with each and every day. Here is the bigger message don’t be scared of something you don’t think you fit the mold of. Don’t think just because you’re not some elite sub-“ _ “ That you’re not worth the fight and you’re not worth the finish line feels. We all race, run, jog, walk for our own reasOns. We all have our own goal or PR we are going after. Remember it’s your journey, there IS room for you on this course and you are a winner just getting crossing your finish line . I’m proud to be an LA LOYAL and can’t wait to crush some freaking miles and cross that LA Marathon finish line for another year. Don’t be scared try something you haven’t tried before! LA is my heart and I love the good and sometimes the bad and ugly and 26.2 miles is how I enjoy it even more 🏃🏿♀️ #heart #truth #ilovela #lamarathon #werunla #onmywayla
