No, I am not training for a marathon, and I doubt that I ever will. I find running extremely boring. it is not something that I find liberating, like my running friends do. I will never be one that will want to run until my toenails fall off. But creating a healty life style is like running a marathon. In visiting with some of my friends who have done this, the key to doing so is steady, consistent training. People who run a marathon do not start by running 26.1 miles one day. It takes daily discipline, set backs (like toenails falling off), determination, and a plan. I have developed a plan changing my lifestyle from sedentary and unhealthy food to active and healthy food, and I am having to go day by day. Some days are good, others...not so much, but I press on, and someday, it will be second nature for to me to make the wise food choices, and do some exercise.
