Graffiti at Epcot

Yesterday was the fourth run without orthotics. The first week was only three miles each run. But yesterday it was seven miles. Nice and easy. Is it possible to let go of a 12+ year crutch?

Life goes on.

Depending on what’s important and how bad you want something, you can find a way to keep moving forward.

Don’t let good excuses become a habit.
