“The first and best victory is to conquer self”

On my last post I did a shameless humble-brag of my 20lbs weight loss. On top of losing the weight I also completed the Gate River Run which is a local national championship 15k. I walked it, but I finished it! I would never have thought I could do something like this last year. My next fitness goal is to complete the Couch to 5k program so that I can run a 5k. I never thought I could be a runner but easing my way into it, training my body to become accustomed, I really think I can do this.

The quote above is from Plato but not the entire quote. To be conquered by self is, of all things, the most shameful and vile. Now when I read the first half I thought of how we work on ourselves to find our best possible self. Conquering some faults sounded good to me. I have always found that difficult. My life is filled with feelings of guilt over various things that happened in my life.
