A runner?

So half marathon training this week has not gone so well. Grier has had a few bad nights and without sleep I am useless. I'm sure I probably could have run, but my attitude was all out of joint and I was feeling a bit sorry for myself if I'm being honest. I was back to it this morning though and managed a good 3 and half miles feeling good. I know I'm physically capable of completing the half marathon, the battle is going to be all mental. First in completing the training and on the day itself.Pinterest has had bad press recently in regards to it being used as a place for eating disorder sufferers to display and store images. I've seen some (very) unrealistic images on there but nothing I've found shocking and am I alone in believing that every online and in print image of women's bodies is vastly altered anyway? No I use my pinterest running board for things like this Don't tell me that's not funny, and painfully true. And this Which in all seriousness is how I feel. I've told a few people about my training now and I'm sure at least some of them are thinking I don't 'look' like a runner. That is true, I am not going to be rocking team GB colours at London 2012, I may never look like a runner. But the fact that I can and do run makes me a runner. So if there's something you want to do, just get on with it. You don't have to look like a photographer, baker, writer, dancer, singer or anything else you can think of, you just have to do it.
