Get to do vs have to do

Sleeping Beauty Castle
Walking through Disneyland and Disney’s California Adventure theme parks last week never felt like exercise.

The perfect exercise is one that you find invigorating. 

The perfect exercise will sometimes feel like work, but that work-feeling won’t have controlling interest over invigorating.

We walked 8-10 miles every day, seven consecutive days, plus four days in Eugene, Oregon before arriving in Anaheim.

One of the million ways to get and stay motivated

High School daily calendar announcements
Planning to attend the Track & Field meet at 3:15pm today. The 13 seniors are part of our Son’s graduating class.

One of the million ways to get and stay motivated is to find a team or sport and become a lifelong fan.

Favorite team is Team USA.

Favorite sport, Women’s and Men’s Track and Field.

Favorite Motivation Tip

Steve Prefontaine's Legacy
Steve Prefontaine's Legacy

Here’s my personal favorite tip to stay motivated:

  • Find a million ways.

Who’s going to be more passionate and concerned for your motivation than you?

Seriously.  Who?

Studying others who’ve overcome obstacles is just one way. It’s one of my favorite ways. Steve Prefontaine, a rebel, also happened to be a runner.

And in the process, with his relentless courage and determination, he changed the way Americans thought, and continue to think, about running. He held every American running record from 2,000 – 10,000 meters.

In his greatest race at the 1972 Munich Olympics, he finished fourth. No medal. No glory. No hero’s welcome.

But yet, he’s the only athlete Nike has ever immortalized in a bronze statue. Ever. Any sport.  Period.
