It's been a rough year. I am a marine veteran, honorably discharged in 2008. I have since worked hard to get the career I wanted. I also started a home based business. With everything going on in my life the gym and working out always got pushed to the side. I am finally motivated and have been pushing myself to get back in routine.

It hasn't been easy, but I have stayed motivated and I encourage others to stay motivated also. Results will come with patience and hard work. I was a little depressed going from running almost 15 miles at a time to getting winded after 1. I never gave up though, I can run 5 miles now before I start getting a little tired.

Keep up the hard work buddies!

I've been there. And, still kind of there. I'm 35 now. And, it gets harder the longer you wait. So, stay with it. OOHRAH

That's inspiring. Depression is a hard one to beat. Definitely hurts your heart's stamina. Take it forward, bring yourself together one day at a time.
