Two years ago I never thought I could ever run a mile. (I could barely walk on the treadmill without running out of breath.)  In 8th grade it took me 15 to 20 minutes just to run one mile. Then in my Jr. year of high school I started working on the treadmill for 30 minutes a day. Then gradually I started to run. My first goal was to run half a mile each day. Then as I surpassed that goal I upped my speed and my goal to a mile. Over time my speed got faster and my time got shorter. Fast forward two years and now I run up to two miles in the time it would have taken me to run one. Yesterday I set a new goal to run three miles, and I did in about 25 minutes.

 

People now ask me what do I do to get motivated and how do I stay motivated?  Why do you do what you do? Listen people, like it or not I am going to stay honest in this, I do this for me. NO ONE ELSE! When it comes to me and my workouts, no one gets in the way of them. My family and friends know that if they want to spend time with me during workout time, then they must workout too. No exceptions! No excuses!

You can do whatever you set your mind to. Yes its going to hurt, but you have to get out of your mind about it. You have to push yourself to the threshold but do not go over it. The work is never done until you are tired,  AND I AM NOT TIRED YET!

wow congratulations that is amazing what you have done. I did something pretty similar to you, I weighed 287 pounds i was very obese i had this dream that i wanted to run a marathon, I made myself small goals and over two years i lost 114 pounds and i ran a full marathon it was an amazing experience. As you said you have to do it for yourself and when you do it for yourself its the best. keep up the great work
