After last week's Tunes-day Playlist, I had to recommend a song my wife would actually listen to. I added it to my ipod this week, and I really like the line in the chorus ... "So why does it feel so wrong, to reach for something more, to wanna live a better life, what am I waiting for?" Kinda applies to us as runners.
It's weird trying to explain running to someone. We are in no way "better" than someone who doesn't run, but I can definitely say that I have a made a better life for myself by being a runner! I feel healthier and stronger than ever. And I'm more confident. It's kinda like I think ... if I can run a marathon, I can do anything.
Now, I WOULD NOT recommend logging STUPID mileage like I do to anyone ... but I look at lot of folks and can't help but feel that a few small changes in their lives would mean a world of difference to them. If they would just take the first step. Maybe walk for 10 minutes a day. Or maybe drink one less soda after lunch. Maybe try to get to the gym once or twice a week (but not my gym, it's too crowded this time of year). Heck, before you know it, maybe they'll be running their first 5K. We all started somewhere, and at some point thought, "Maybe it's time to change!"
Be Great Today!
