Hi Robert or should I say Certified Running Coach! Thanks for stopping by. I don't always post on your page, but do enjoy your inspiration and progress. It helps me to stay motivated and healthy. Great job on passing the test! Staying Strong Together!
Thanks for stopping by, Robert. I know when you write you really write for you alone, and that we are just along for the ride. At least that's the way most of us write, I believe. But you are such an incredible inspiration to so many in the SP community, and sometimes, it seems, the hardest critic is ourselves. What lies ahead will come, with time, with patience, and with kindness. Just look at how far you've come from where you were. Without a doubt you have added healthy years to your life. As I wrote on my feed the other day, "A slip is not a permanent slide". It happens to all of us, and it really shouldn't be an excuse to totally derail us in the process. We will succeed, because we choose to. And we're still here. That's what truly separates SP from other sites with similar weight loss plans. It's not a "magic" formula. It's the community that keeps bringing us back. Who would have thought that a community of strangers could be such a powerful influence to cheer us on as we strive to reach the pinnacle of our goals?
Congrats, too, are certainly in order for your latest achievement as a certified running coach. Now go back in time and tell your 300-plus self, what lies ahead for him.
And thanks, too, for allowing us to accompany you on your journey.
