I'm a newbie to running. Tried it about a year ago, end of week one my knees hurt so bad I was laid up for a month. I had bad shoes for sure so this time I invested in good running shoes and a personally fitted orthodic for support. We shall see!
I need to do this. I gained 60 pounds in the years following my parents deaths. Had two babies and postpartum never went away. Been treating depression for 11 years.
I'm done being the complainer and making excuses for myself. Yes, I suffer from depression. I always will. But I can control some of it. I can help my moods and self esteem. I can feel better. If I want to.
I want to. For me. I hope my family will follow, but in the past I've failed the exercise thing because I wasn't properly focused (I think). It can't be for others. So here I am.
