I run, a lot. I am obsessed with my Peloton and now that IMCDA is back in 2021, I will soon be wearing chlorine as my signature smell. I think it is safe to say that I keep my body in activity more than the average Jane.
But I want to make one thing very, very clear. I do not do all of this to look good naked. I also do not do any of this to look good for other people. I do this because it allows to me live life more fully, do the things that I enjoy, go on adventures, #bemyownengine and bring me back to the present moment in the chaos of life.
Running in the mountains is part of who I am, my peloton is a daily dance party that energizes my soul and let’s be honest, swimming is a necessity to get me to my other two loves, biking and running.
Riddle me this, Batman….if moving your body had no effect on your physical appearance, would you still be doing what you are doing?
Is there another way you would choose to move your body instead?
Is the reason you move your body out of fear or love?
Be honest with yourself.
One last thing…..I think you are beautiful, today, right now, morning breath, acne, sloppy clothes, dressed to the nines, larger or smaller than you were last year…The YOU that is reading this right now.
