A 2009 senior Olympics Gold medal
Today’s post reflects back four years to the day – March 1, 2009 – and a post answering why does jeff noel want to go, and thinks it’ even possible to go, to the Masters Track and Field World Championships in Finland.
Part of it lies in the notion we want to stay healthy as we age. And part that we don’t want to die with too many
. unfulfilled childhood dreams
This month jeff noel is encouraging Mid Life Celebration readers to follow all five daily blogs about work life balance. It’s a breeze to go from this
blog to the physical health blog, just click -> spiritual health go to Next Blog
Picking the obvious one should be easy.
A story huh? Well, my five blogs get written after I wake up but before heading out for a run and work. So there’s not much time – it’s completely, utterly, in the moment, with few exceptions.
After taking a quick glance at what I wrote yesterday, I wondered what the story was
three years ago today. Talk about coincidence – it’s a decent if I do say so myself. story
Training. Disney. Money.
What do they have in common?
They are all great
google keywords. Significantly better than many others you’d think would be great.
But guess what, technology has a funny way of leveling the playing field. You can have a great product, but if your Internet marketing is average, you may find yourself playing catch-up.
Same thing with running, except keywords don’t level the playing field.
My “comeback” 5k this morning was faster than I hoped. Awesome. The consistent
training, while working full time at Disney, has paid off far more than money.
Read more if you’re interested to see how I’ve become a contender at the Master’s World Championships, and leaving much of the competition playing, well, catch up. Carpe diem, jeff 🙂
It hit me a few years ago.
And I was reminded of it yesterday, when I casually shared it with a friend who wants to lose 50 pounds.
Your carrot has to be huge. It has to be one
you’ll chase for the rest of your life.
Until I die?
My big carrot?
It ain’t the world championships.
Being a role model for my son. Honoring our creator who gave us the gift of our body. Seeing our son graduate from high school. Etc.
The world championships? A smaller, several year carrot.
Make today a day you stop by the produce section and get yourself some vegetables. Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂
