Weekends were made for Michelob

Yesterday, a Saturday, at school.

 

Weekends were made for Michelob. A 1977 commercial and it’s tag line made me think about a similar tag line:

Weekends were made for bicycling.

We have been bicycling regularly (though nothing major) throughout the summer. But with the advent of High School, the only time available is on the weekends.

It’s too hot after the sun comes up. And after school is iffy because of common Florida thunderstorms.

So the freshman gets up early on the weekends.

The two things that stop us from exercising

Plenty of exercise back in the day

 

The two things that stop us from exercising:

  1. Adult responsibility
  2. Thinking we’ll get back to it when we get things in order

There Once Was A Man From…

…Nantucket.  Wait, that’s not where we want to go today. Met a businessman, 62, on a flight yesterday.  He was reading “Bicycling” magazine.  He looked great and had an incredibly healthy “glow”.

So naturally, because it’s a quirk I have, the question jumped out, “Are you a cyclist”?

“Yes”!, he affirmed. And he went on to explain that he was returning from cycling America’s second toughest century (100 miles) ride.

Obsessed with truth and meaning, quite naturally, additional questions jumped out, including, “What motivates you”?   He explained how in his stressful job (and who among us doesn’t have a ton of stress?), the way he keeps things stable, is to exercise.

We all know this don’t we?  Deep down inside, we all know that exercise is a key to living well.  Yet, quite naturally, I can’t for the life of me, figure out why so few people do anything about it.
