I have been active on DisBoards since I started training for the princess last year. Its a very supportive community with lots of great info. The exercise/race/health board is known as W.i.S.H. for
“We’re Inspired to Stay Healthy”.
I ordered a shirt to wear during races from this group and I LOVE the saying on the back.
I will never “win” a race, and by that I mean be the fastest in my age group and I am OK with that. The best thing about running to me… its a sport where you can just race yourself…..whether you are going for a personal record, trying to beat everyone else and get a trophy/prize or just trying to finish.
When I tried running 11 years ago, I couldn’t get over the fact I was so slow and I think that is why it didn’t stick. NOW I am just happy to be out doing something healthy and watching my progress. Some days just STARTING a run is the triumph!
Oh and if you go to the DisBoards WISH Page, I am saysay – what we used to call my daughter when she was a baby. AND if you see a neon green WISH Disboards shirt in any local Atlanta races on a slightly overweight slow runner/walker, chances are you are watching me in all my glory!
