December 3. Moment.
Pick one moment during which you felt most alive this year. Describe it in vivid detail (texture, smells, voices, noises, colors).

The moment that comes to mind to me was during my C25k training back in March. For the first time, I ran twenty-five minutes straight without stopping for a walk break.
The feeling I got during that time was like nothing else I had ever experienced before. I felt invigorated, as if I were truly alive. Running that long really made me believe that I could do anything I wanted to. Nothing was going to stop me from conquering whatever I wanted to do.
Of course I felt more alive when I changed my life and lost the weight, but there is just something about running, getting out there with the wind in your face that makes you feel more alive than before. As I was running, I knew that if I could finish that run, that nothing else seemed that difficult. I recall telling myself over and over again during the run, â€œyou can do it, you are strong and capable of so much.â€ Those words, and words like it continue to aid me in pushing myself each day.
