Defeated for a moment 

Thursday, June 8th, 2017

Non fasting day

Went to the park to do some light jogging

For a moment I felt defeated as I stretched and prepped and began and couldn’t jog for more than 30 seconds before my knees and calves started hurting

Just for a moment as other joggers ran passed me and I was nearly crippled in pain

Just for a moment when I was ready to stop and turn around and go the 1000 feet back to my car

Just for a moment when I wanted to pull off, ashamed and embarrassed and wanting to hide from people I didn’t even know

Just for a moment

But then I thought about how everyone starts somewhere and it’s never to late to start over

But then I thought if I walk no one knows if I chose to walk or if I’m walking because I can’t run

But then I thought you are doing this for you and no one else

So I kept going and kept walking
