No pain, go gain

Disney Institute Keynote Speaker
At Disney, or anywhere greatness is abundant.

No pain, go gain.

The 30-day break from running has morphed into 2-3 years. i never wrote the date down because it wasn’t supposed to be a significant gap.

Continuous foot pain. At any moment. For any reason. Its cause never uncovered. So all i could do was move on.

The biking and walking to the gym have been my cardio supplements without running.

And then we returned from a family trip to Glacier National Park.

We began running one-mailbox-a-day a few days later on August 6, 2018. This is a significant date because all three of us began together – with a dream of lifetime fitness.

Our run this morning was about 1.25 miles at a slow pace. But we are out the door long before the sun is up. That is a miracle, a blessing.

For weeks now, i haven’t detected a hint of pain.

Fear and doing nothing

quote
In discomfort now.

Fear and doing nothing.

What if?

Right?

What if something goes terribly wrong?

Work hard to mitigate risk. Work hard to create “worst case” scenarios so you can determine your recovery options and loss prevention options.

If we don’t, we become a prisoner to fear, a bird in a cage so to speak, never free to fly.

Why do we choose to exercise?

swimming pool fill to the brim
The automatic water level re-fill control isn’t working so the water level was low enough that i had to manually refill about three inches to be safe. About eight inches later, i realized my forgetfulness.

Why do we choose to exercise?

Doesn’t matter why.

What matters is that we choose.

Habits are a tidal wave

culture
Habits bless us and curse us. We are not doomed, as the cartoon states, unless we think we are.

Habits are a tidal wave.

Bad habits can control us and overwhelm us like a tidal wave – completely wrecking whatever is in its path.

And this control can last a lifetime.

Same thing happens in companies that haven’t learned to manage their culture well.

Back to doom and gloom. You have the power, with the right goals and motivation, to not be doomed.

Avoiding health trauma

Spring Grove, PA
Make a right at my Grandparent’s row home (and the Ford dealership) to drive a few blocks to the (old) High School, the one my dad and i attended).

The healthiest people are the ones who are irrationally passionate about being healthy.

To be unhealthy, for them, would be trauma to their wellness.
