You just keep going!

Monday, January 16, 2012

I was telling my Dad about my run on the trail the other morning...5.25 miles, 26 degrees. He said..."I don't know how you do that?"

Today I was thinking about this when I was out there...a little warmer, 29 degrees. My tracks in the snow are the only ones of the morning. Am I crazy? I don't know, but I'm loving it so I just keep going!!!

I was remembering when I was younger (grade school age) Dad and I would love it when it would snow. It meant spending hours playing in the snow on the 3-wheelers. We’d be out all night long in the cold and wet weather, but it was so much fun! When I’d start to feel cold my Dad would say, “You just have to keep going”. He was right…the more we’d keep playing and moving the warmer I’d feel and the longer I could enjoy it!

This definitely played a part in who I am today. The answer to my Dad’s question…”I don’t know how you do that?”

From the trail this morning…

    You've got that right... just keep going. I used that mental power this morning when I really didn't want to get up and workout. I did it and I'm so glad that I just kept going.

Amazing picture from your trail. I'm sure the scenery is one of the many things that keep you going.

    I really admire your "just keep going" attitude! It's what really brings things to completion! Of course, it helps I love our friendship. You've been missed, but I've been MIA for a little while, too. I'm not sure where all my time goes, but it seems to disappear before I get a chance to use it. LOL! (((HUGS))) to you on your morning run and warm smiles for the rest of the day! emoticon
