Run Your Own Race
Friday, February 22, 2013
It is important that we run our own race.
- not too fast, but not too slow either. We have to take others in to account and be an encouragement to them as they run their races. Try not to compare yourself too closely with others. We are all at different stages on our own courses. You can learn from those who have gone before and you have the privilege of teaching those who come behind.
My daughter and I are good examples of this. She is a runner and dedicated to her training. I do well to get in two miles of walking. I can not run since a knee injury and later surgery took it's toll. When we go to the park together she will run and ,at times, slow down and walk with her Mom until she has to pick up the speed again. I love that she takes a few minutes every round or two to walk with me.
My best exercise and one that I can spend longer times doing is the recumbent bike. I still love the walking and like doing Leslie Sansome's and Richard Simmons workouts.
