I received a horrible, horrible surprise in my inbox the other day: photos from last week's race.
They were horrid. I'm talking "oh-my-God-that-can't-be-me" horrid. I take photos of myself every month, hoping to see my weight-loss, so I AM forcing myself to look at what I've become. But these photos were 10 times worse. I used to say I was shaped like a snowman, but now apparently I'm just shaped like a snowball. A snowball with a potato-shaped head plopped on top.
Incentive to work harder? I hope. Incentive to at least SMILE when I'm running? Better believe it.
