Some Holiday Motivation
Wow – I’m so glad the holidays only come once a year. I might just turn into a cookie if they came more often. Cookies don’t run well so this could be a bad thing.
It’s easy to get lazy and slack during December. After all, it is Christmas so why not take some time off and relax? I visited with my 93 year old grandfather yesterday and he reminded me there are no days off…if you want it, you work for it. Every morning he wakes up and goes walking with his neighborhood friends and has rarely missed a day in 30+ years. It doesn’t matter if it’s raining, snowing, hot or cold. The only reason he misses a walk now is when it’s raining, and that’s because he uses a walker and can’t carry an umbrella.
PaPa, you are my motivation this holiday season. I will stay dedicated to my runs and to the workouts, and I will step away from those cookies (but only after I enjoy at most one).
Happy Trails and Happy Running,
