For the first time today is a very long time, I actually tried a little black dress on and liked what I saw back in the mirror. Running for over 10 weeks now has really helped shift the muffin top and my hips look much slinkier. I came out of the shop with the dress purchased (it was in the sale too...!) and all the hard work of c25k and beyond felt worth it.
That feeling alone helps me get out to run no matter how tired I feel.
