"I never thought I would actually like running, but now it is my time to myself where I can relax and think. I have come up with some of my best ideas while running or swimming!"
"Move your body, move your state of mind."
"I'm...working out more regularly and happily than I ever have. That means I have better stamina for harder workouts and more energy throughout my day. I've also noticed that regular exercise has kept my migraines and asthma in check. I can see muscle definition coming back to my arms, abs, and legs, and yoga moves that felt far beyond my reach a few months ago are now a part of my practice. But the mental shift still feels like the most profound change. I find myself racing through work in the afternoons to ensure I don't miss my favorite yoga classes."
"Pure and simple, I was a couch potato heading for an early demise. My decision to get active and make changes in my life occurred with a health issue. It was then that I decided enough was enough. With a coordinated effort between my health care professionals and my desire to feel better, I started eating better, losing weight and I am now physically active six our of seven days."
“I keep thinking, ‘I don’t deserve this [attention],’ but if it helps or if it encourages anybody, it makes me feel good. I think if I can do it, anybody can do it, because I wasn’t trained to be a runner. But I have also found that it’s very invigorating. I feel like a million dollars when I’m finished.”
