Thunder Thighs

For most of my life I hated my bulky legs, aka thunder thighs. It wasn't until I discovered running, then biking, that I realized how lucky I was to have such strong legs. Even on a day when my workout feels extra hard, I am so grateful for my legs that have allowed me to find freedom and confidence.

"I have thunder thighs. And that's a compliment because they are strong and toned and muscular. And though they are unwelcome in the petite section, they are cheered on in marathons. Fifty years from now I'll bounce a grandchild on my thunder thighs and then I'll go out for a run. Just do it."
