That's not a killer, it's a builder.

Wednesday, April 10, 2013

Just quickly want to share part of a conversation between my son and I as we were wogging this afternoon. Our most convenient exercise route from home is a long uphill climb from our house to the nearest town. I was admiring the way the road sort of curves and ripples its steep way uphill to town. I think it really is a pretty route but it is a killer of a steep hill. I said that out loud and my son's response was "It's not a killer. It's a builder." I said "Wow, I like that. Can I use it?"
I just love the twist that it gives on the route. I am building strength, endurance, stamina and self-esteem every time that I conquer that hill!
It's all a matter of how you look at it and what words you use to make it work for you!

Go find your hill and conquer it. It's not a killer, it's a builder!

  I believe hard workouts are made easier (at least on the mind) when you are surrounded by beauty.
