If you hate running, this is probably why

Simple and small cake.

 

After almost two years intentional rest from running (1st break since 1999) we (Family) began running one mailbox a day last Monday. Tomorrow,  it’s two mailboxes a day – Monday through Friday.

Mailboxes are 100 meters apart in our neighborhood.

It will take one month to run the equivalent on one lap around a high school track.

Have always believed the reason most people say they don’t like running is because they do too much too soon, and they quit before they even get started.

Our pace is slower than walking by the way.

Finally, everyone knows that running (or walking, or swimming, biking, etc) improves so many things, right?

Happy present moment.

If not now, when?
If not ever, why?

Took three tries to get 20 miles

One way to High School.

 

Took three tries to get 20 miles.

  1. Seven miles round trip to High School at 7:00am
  2. Six miles round trip to Pool Supply Store at 12:00pm
  3. Seven miles round trip to High School at 3:00pm

All of these trips traditionally are done with a car.

Who doesn’t want to become more active?

We are leaving in 30 minutes to ride to High School. i’ll return home and then walk three miles roundtrip to the gym.

Wishing it would have happened in the past?

First look as we drive east to Rising Sun.

 

Imagine your health being in direct relationship to your family’s health history. Now, look into the future at the you you are destined to become. What will you most likely have wished you had done, or started to do, when you are your current age (today)?

On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

 

There are moments in time that change everything

Mid Life Celebration keynote speaker
The upper right quadrant represents our body. – our physical health.

 

There are moments in time that change everything. And if we are intentional, we’ll control when many of these moments happen.

And the reason we want to control when they happen is so it will be easier to remember them.

The easier it is to remember them, the more likely they are to perpetually influence how we live moment to moment – most of us dream of being in the moment more often.

April 15, 1999 (income tax deadline – a day every working American is familiar with) i began running one mailbox a day for a week. Less than a month ago, on Halloween, my wife and son began doing the same thing.
