"'Success means having the courage, the determination, and the will to become the person you were meant to be.' -George Sheehan ✨ In the first picture, I was sick, tired, depressed and desperate for change. I wanted to feel comfortable in my own skin. My first exercise goal was to run for a full minute. After a couple months of walking and running intermittently, I finally did it. Fast forward 7 years from when that picture was taken. I can now run 13.1 miles. I ran almost everyday for months to prepare for this. I've learned that running takes serious mental toughness, discipline and determination. Seeing my friends and family supporting me was a great feeling. It was like a tribute to the "old me." The first picture reminds me of where I began and the courage and discipline it took to become the woman in the second picture. There is nothing easy about it, and most days you'll want to quit, but if I can do it, anyone can do it. Here's to the next race in September! 🍻" -Sarah Goodenough (@sarahgoody412)
