Day 13: Feeling Proud

It’s that time of the day again! It’s day 13 of the Fitness Blogger 30-Day Writing Challenge. Today the big question is:

What is your proudest health or fitness related accomplishment?

This is an easy one for me. I can say without doubt that it would have to be completing my first half marathon last year. It’s something I had wanted to do for a few years, but had never committed myself to. For me it felt like such a huge achievement, as I’ve never been the fittest person in the world. Fitness doesn’t come easily to me, I have to work at it and until a few years ago even the idea of running would have killed me! 🙂 To start running felt great to me and I am still amazed how far I manage to go! Given I am seriously overweight as well, completing something as huge as a half marathon was quite possibly one of the most momentous occasions of my life!

Next up – marathon here I come!!!!! 🙂
