I am slowly starting the journey back into running after a year+ off and am having trouble staying positive with having to start so far back from where I had ended before.

This morning I was checking the local temperatures (it is -9 here, by the way! Ugh! lol) at weather.com and happened across a series of videos called "I Am Unstoppable." WOW. Talk about people pushing past barriers to achieve their goals! And MUCH bigger and more daunting barriers than I'VE ever faced, yet they did it...and with tremendous amounts of success!

I am humbled. And inspired. And ready to drop my excuses and get back to achieving my running (and other) goals!

Who knew that the Weather Channel would be the source of such tremendous inspiration? LOL

Now...watch these videos if you need inspiration, then get out there and bust past YOUR barriers! We are ALL Unstoppable if we out our minds to it!

    Oddly, it isn't much warmer here in Portland! Great blog! I knocked off running for about 3 months and was surprised how sore I was after a 5K run!
    Good luck, I think the cold may be more of a problem than the actual running! You know you have this!

    Still plugging along here, but need to pick up the pace. Freezing rain here for the next 2 days, so pulling the bands and pedal bike out. No stairs in the MH. Keep up the good work. Congrats on your progress.

    It is always hard to get back on track but once you set your mind to it and get settled back into a routine you will wonder why you thought it was so hard.

    Take care

    Thanks for sharing these videos. They are inspiring.
    I wasn't able to run for about 18 months. The past 7 months have been a slow time building back up, but for me each little success motivates me to look toward the next little step.
    My running is coming back. I may be at the best I'll ever do during this part of my life, but I'm okay with that. We all struggle with something. Some of us have more success than others, but we all need to keep doing or best.

    I agree with you. Reading other people's stories sure puts our own problems into perspective. Its like a little voice telling me: 'Stop your whining, look what others have to deal with.' Not that our problems are nothing but its a good way to help me refocus on things to be thankful for.

    It is 9 degrees where I am too. I am also inspired to get busy on my journey too. I likewise want to be unstoppable as well.

    I know how you feel... Building up the endurance takes so long but losing it is so fast... Just doesn't seem fair. Good luck .
