Dear running,

Thank you for teaching me that attitude plays a critical role in physical wellness. it’s a simple lesson you taught me that is literally the game-changing reason why today, at 57, i remain a runner active.

You are easily transportable, meaning you are available anywhere as long as i have running shoes. i’ve learned to make running shoes my primary footwear and it’s easy to carry running shorts in a backpack (or suitcase – i have traveled extensively the past dozen years.

You have also taught me to love mornings.

And you have gifted me with this mantra:

Dream Big  •  Get There  •  Stay There

Slaying excuses, allocating time, and finding a million reasons to stay motivated are the three non-negotiables for lifetime wellness.
