If you haven’t read Lauren Fleshman’s post on keeping it real when it comes to the pictures we share of ourselves and how we think about our bodies – I highly recommend it.
I Run This Body super fan Brooke shared her unedited photo and made it in to the Runner’s World Magazine photo gallery. Brooke is a kick butt mommy, wife, runner, and flight attendant, I have loved following her on instagram and bet you would too! You can find her at http://instagram.com/brookethames

I am 100% guilt of only posting pictures of myself that I like. I mean who doesn’t do that right? I want to remember myself in the best light, but the truth is that even though I sometimes look fit or that I occasionally have visible abs – that is not what I look like year round – far from it. I have thigh cheese as Lauren Fleshman called it and can only see my abs on super fit days. Her post was a really good reminder that we shouldn’t compare ourselves to magazines or even to pictures we see online of “real” people. Here’s to remembering to keep it real. Thanks Lauren for the inspiration!
