The (Painful) Journey

What about a running goal?

Ran two miles without pain. Remarkable. This was 6 months ago before going to Glacier for the Summer. There was no running in Glacier.

What about a running goal?

The only running goal, currently, is to be able to run again.

Competing again is not a goal, but it is a dream.

There is something about aging athletes that is inspiring- as if to say, age means nothing.

Danger, dreamers ahead

Where impossible doesn’t exist. It’s up to you to decide.

Dreamers are at risk of getting laughed at, and or disappointed. Dream anyway.

A big part of 2020 dreams revolve around impossible, including running again.

Embrace difference, don’t fear difference

Embrace difference, don’t fear difference.

While i’m focused on physical health here, using “different” in any aspect of your life is something to be embraced.

What does different mean and why is it feared by many, and why does it matter to embrace different? 

Here’s what i think…

i quit drinking December 31, 2001. Only two other close friends have since 2001 (one in 2017, one 5 years ago ). 

i quit a sedentary lifestyle, and began regular, consistent exercise on April 15, 2001.

In 1999, i quit working shift work and began sleeping at night, every night, and became a morning person after leaving Disney Resort Hotel Operations to join Disney Institute (DI).

i quit sugar 11 weeks ago, October 31, 2018.

i quit being afraid to speak in public in early 1999 after joining DI to become a speaker – that which i feared, i became.

All of the above have transformed daily living.

It’s better.

Much better.

Thank you, different.

The long way is the shortcut

The long way is the shortcut.

Just finished shuffling through five mailboxes.

First with Cheryl at 515am.

Then again with Chapin at 615am.

Three weeks ago we did back-to-back weeks at three mailboxes.

Why?

Because we aren’t in a hurry.

This morning’s “run” was the equivalent of one and a quarter laps around a high school track.

Ridiculously slow progress.

Couldn’t be happier.
