Jacqueline’s Story of her New and Improved Identity

Jacqueline shared an inspiring story with me that I’d like to pass along.  She described a typical day, while still actively using, sitting on the side of the road watching runners go by.  She wondered if she’d ever be “normal” like them, and if she could ever do something like that.  Back in those days, she thought of herself as someone who couldn’t finish anything she started, someone who couldn’t achieve a goal.  Not any more!

Now she’s someone who ran 10 miles, a distance most “normal” runners don’t achieve. She’s someone who can achieve a seemingly impossible goal, and is ready for even more challenging goals.  As she described it to me, “Running changed the way I think of myself.  It changed my identity!”


How has running changed your self image?!
