I have been running 5Ks and half marathons for about 10 years, a lot the first few years, fewer in the last few years. I don't think I have run a 5K in about 6 years. Most of the time I had to run in men's shorts because the women's cut was too small. Most of the time I ran in men's shirts for the same reason. Occasionally I would find something in the women's section that I could cram into. I never got to pick because I always had to buy what was available in my size. 10 years ago I got to pick out cute clothes to run in. Today I got to pick out something to run in. I got to choose. I didn't have to buy the only thing that was available. I got to shop around. I got to decide.

I am not expecting great things at the race today but great things are happening because of the effort I have put into life. I get to run today because I am making my body important again. I am not expecting great things today I am expecting them from now on.
