Good Enough For Top 20?

Is The Mask His Silver Bullet?
Is The Mask His Silver Bullet?

Ever do a 5k in your community and place in the top 20 for your age group?

Pretty cool feeling, if you’ve done it. And if you haven’t, you know what a cool feeling of accomplishment it could be.

Having a decent goal is very motivating.

How important is motivation?

Perhaps it’s life’s silver bullet.

PS. This is going somewhere…

Do You Want It Or Not?

Diet, Exercise & Rest
Diet, Exercise & Rest

Every day is the same. We all have a ton of things to do. A ton of things on our minds. People clamoring for our attention. Deadlines. Bills. Chores. Routines. Obligations. Hope. Dreams. Worries.

Getting healthy and staying healthy are probably two of the most desirable on the entire wish list.

Do you want it or not?

Yesterday (Not The Beatles Song)

Take Your Time, But Don't Wait
Take Your Time, But Don't Wait

Yesterday a friend said I was probably the only person who thinks running and sweating is fun. It was their response after reading a conference agenda that started the day with an optional “fun run”, in the Florida heat.

Sitting here writing this second of five blogs before I go for a five-mile run (yes, in the sweaty Florida heat), the fun won’t come soon enough. Partly because this is my “Monday”, meaning the past two days have been active rest days.

How can you become motivated to be focused and disciplined to feel the same way?

Man, wish I had an answer for you. Part of the root cause of my joy is the feeling I get when my clothes fit comfortably. When I can be active and not feel “old”. When I enjoy an ice cream cone without an ounce of guilt, like yesterday.

National Running Day

Slow And Steady Wins Life's Race
Slow And Steady Wins Life's Race

Today is National Running Day. Who knew? As a runner, I had never heard of it. Showed up on Facebook this morning. Many people say things like, “I hate running”, or “I’ve never been a runner”.

Given a choice, it would almost seem like many would also add, “I hate walking”, or “I’ve never liked walking”.

And it doesn’t stop there, it continues with, “I hate vegetables”, or “I’ve never liked vegetables”.

Absurd!
