Hello! My name is Jolie, I'm 24 and this is my fitblr blog. I started running in 2011 and had a set back mid year but I'm back in full force and couldn't be happier. Ive done a couple 5k's a 10k and finished my first half marathon! I have no desire to be stick thin, just happy, healthy, and in shape. Follow my journey.
GPOYW~ I still can’t believe I did a half marathon edition.
The girl who was the last one to finish the mile in high school, the girl who could never keep up with her friends when they were running, the girl who has a home video of her mom saying to “put down the chips” when she was 5 years old.
I constantly got teased when I was younger for being overweight, like most larger kids do. My mom told me daily, “don’t eat that, you don’t need more, drink more water.” She was just trying to help but when you’re younger and have friends who eat whatever they want and stay skinny it’s confusing. I just wanted to be “normal” and I ended up feeling more guilty and eating more which is a sick cycle of unhealthy behavior. I’m still working on myself everyday trying to remind myself I’m not that kid that is being teased. It’s hard, but I’ve accomplished more athletically than most of my friends and I’m so proud of myself for working so hard.
