Last night at the gym after my quick outside run I hopped on the elliptical so I could finish my workout. I got on, started going, put on my Netflix and tried to pay attention to the Kardashians. I had a hard time because I realized the woman next to me was having a really difficult time on the machine. She had to stop every few minutes or so to just catch her breath. This woman was trying her absolute hardest on the machine.
It made me think about how lucky I am to be where I am in life right now. I can run long distances at a fairly easy pace, I can do pretty much any machine at the gym and most importantly I love working out. I think sometimes we forget how incredible our bodies are and how important it is to take care of them. Watching this woman, I was so proud of her, so happy she was doing all that she could to workout. It made me truly appreciate my ability to run and workout that much more.
So, take a minute today to appreciate your body and all the wonderful things it does for you. Whether or not you run marathons or are just starting a work-out regimen you are awesome and should be proud you’re taking the steps to take care of that fabulous body of yours. Rock on people!
