And it had me crying like a baby.
It's hard to explain.
I see and hear the women in the video and know I'm one of them. I'm a runner. And that's so far outside of anything I EVER thought I would call myself. EVER.
And I watch it and know that I'm a different person than I was before I started running 5 months ago. Physically different (which I'm SUPER thrilled about), but also psychologically different. I'm a more healthy person. And I'm stronger - physically and mentally.
And I'm no longer on the outside looking in at those people thinking to myself "I'll never be able to run", because I am. I'm now on the inside.
And it may sound silly to say, but it's changed my life.
So to answer the question in the video - Why did I run today?
Because I wanted to. And because I can.
