Had to. Me? Or the dog? Or maybe, both?

 

Windermere Run Among the lakes 5k 2018.

Very first 5k ever was this one, in 2002.

The past few years, including yesterday’s 2018 event, we’ve walked it as a Family.

Creating traditions (around milestones, anniversaries, and transformation) is a key element i learned from Walt Disney World operations.

Yesterday was so small and yet so large.

First day of the Windermere Runner’s Club summer program.

One-mile time trial in 9:50.

Been A Year Since

I Run To Set A Healthy Example
I Run To Set A Healthy Example

Trying to keep from going crazy is a full-time job, with the pressures of today’s economy and all that.

Running helps me maintain perspective and balance.

Leaving here in a few minutes to drive to Windermere, Florida for the ninth annual Run Among the Lakes 5k, which starts at 8:00AM.

It’s a short drive.  Tiger, Shaq, Ken Griffey Jr, and a host of other famous people live there.

My very first 5k ever was this race, back in 2004. Shooting to break the 22:10 from my inaugural 5k.

More later.  Gotta go. Stay healthy, have fun….stay healthy, have fun….stay…..

Run Among The Lakes 5k

5K Race Route Through Windermere, FL

How are your health goals progressing for 2010?

It’s a challenge keeping up with them, isn’t it?  What do you do to not give up, to not give in?

Just keep trying, is the mantra we read in yesterday’s Lane 8 post. So here’s a little story.

Was in Albuquerque the past three days. Two of them without exercise, even though I intended to.

Yesterday, after landing in Orlando at 5:00pm, I stopped at Gold’s Gym on the way home, for a brief core workout and then drove to Windermere for an easy 5k.

Tomorrow is the annual Windermere Run Among The Lakes 5k. There’s an emotional attachment to this event. It was the first 5k I ever ran, maybe 2004. And it’s the last one I ran in 2009.

The obvious message: Getting and staying physically active and healthy is hard work. Period. Anyone telling your differently is lying to you.

Find a million ways to get and stay motivated and be prepared for a lifetime of temptations to quit.
