Look at this:
I ran so far today that my toe started bleeding. I am a real runner!
Now, this isn’t to say I am a FAST runner, or a GOOD runner, or even a slightly-above-average runner. But I ran 2 miles tonight, without stopping, without pain, and I felt like I could keep going. I am doing it!
I won’t be winning races any time soon, but I am starting to think I might actually complete one.
