Bad back perhaps keeping me rested up, but I’m making big plans for the year ahead. I’m keen to revisit @iten_kenya a few times and meet more of you guys out there for @runnersheal , alongside #werunthis Water Project visits - earmarked for Turkana & Ethiopia where I shall hopefully catch up with @mamitumolisa once she has taken the @bostonmarathon by storm !! Not forgetting of course, mapping out plans for @acholajanet - who by the way, has her Commonwealth trials tomorrow back home in Uganda so let’s wish her the best of luck ! Right then... let’s go for it !” | Follow him for more.
It’s has been interesting to watch my body transform over the last year and half (since I began my exercise journey) and especially so since I began marathon training.
My legs are the biggest they’ve ever been. They may not look it in this photo, but damn they feel it. I weigh the most I’ve ever weighed. I eat the most I’ve ever eaten. I have 3 pairs of jeans left that fit me (really only two but I’m holding on to my favs).
A small part of me is so frustrated because I really don’t want to buy new pants. A small part of me is aware that I was conditioned from a young young age that women “should be smaller and too many muscles is not feminine”. A bigger part of me (and the loudest voice) is so freaking proud of my body.
My body is getting stronger. It’s running longer and it’s allowing me to accomplish things that I’ve never done before. Despite what we were conditioned to believe from the magazines and the tv ads, it’s not about what we look like; but instead, what our bodies can do for us. Mine is growing. Mine is accomplishing goals. Mine is allowing me to move. I’m really freaking grateful for what my body is enabling me to do.
