Well good morning friends!
Yesterday was a LONG day at work, because for some reason I had the worst head and body ache 🙁 As soon as I got home I went straight to bed and got in a great 9 solid hours of sleep. It is amazing what rest can do for the body, I feel like a NEW person!
So I had someone ask why it was a goal of mine to run a marathon in my sports bra. Well here is my reasoning. I have always been so self conscious of my body. When I was in cross-country in Highschool I always felt like I was too fatÂ to run just in my sports bra. So I watched the other girls do it and felt bad.Â Â Why did I care about what others thought, I was never too fat!
WhenÂ I took off my shirt and ran in Chicago,Â it was so freeing to not care about what other people thought of what I looked like. Who really cares anyways?! Shoot I was running a marathon! I know I will probably fight with body image for the rest of my life (I am a woman), but right now I have never felt more proud and blessed and what God has made me.
“For God created my inmost being; he Â knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise him because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;Â his works are wonderful,Â I know that full well.” Psalm 139:24
