Just A Fool To Believe

Find Your Reason To Change
Find Your Reason To Change

Really, it’s simply too difficult to change.

Sure, I want to be healthy for the rest of my life.

Who doesn’t?

But my gosh, there is so much stuff clamoring for my attention, my time.

Ever feel like this?

Maybe we’re all a bunch of fools to believe we can change.

When I Run, I

Middle School Track

How much “on-purpose” thinking and acting do you do in your day-to-day routine?

A lot?  Some?  None?

How would your days look and feel (differently?) if you tried to be more “on-purpose”?

What are the advantages, the disadvantages and what doesn’t even matter?

These are all opportunities to make your life and the lives of others different, better.

When I run and it’s windy, I always run harder into the wind than when it’s at my back.

When I run and there are hills, I run harder up the hill than down it.

When I warm up, before running in a competition, I sweat and breath hard, really hard. You have to be in shape just to warm up.

And when the race is into the wind, because often it is, guess who has an advantage?

We often don’t know why we run, we just do.  Not because it is doing us good, but because we love it so much and can not stop ourselves from doing it.

Lane 8 & The Stanley Cup Finals?

What do Lane 8 and the Stanley Cup Finals have in common?

I never thought about it until I woke up this morning.

I’m in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania at the University of Pittsburgh Alumni Hall.

You know of my goal to be a world-class Master’s Track athlete at 400 meters, in the 50-54 age group, right?

So I wonder if the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Detroit Red Wings think like I do?  Or I like them?

I bet we do.

Remember yesterday’s video post?  The theme?  “Out work ’em”!

Putting in the extra effort, in a comprehensive manner, is what elevates one’s performance.  Whether it’s running, hockey, or public speaking.
