I have friends who are running at Ragnar Del Sol (Arizona) this weekend. My Facebook has their posts. ..
Heather (NEWSGIRL2177) rocks her workouts at Kaia...
Anja (4A-HEALTHY-BMI) just got back from her kayaking trip in Antarctica...
I am lucky to be surrounded, virtually, by my friends that are thinking about healthy living, pushing themselves to engage physically, and move forward in their accomplishments. That's one of the biggest things I missed last year from not being on Spark.
It was easy for me to slip further and further away from the thoughts of making exercise a priority in my life. Not having enough time, being tired or sick.. the normal excuses popped up. And once they wedged themselves as a barrier between me and taking action, it seemed even less within my reach.
This video about people sharing intimate thoughts and life insights while running reminds me that running is just a part of life.
Running isn't the point of this video. But so many people see that activity as being entirely out of reach. Being BEYOND what they would even consider.
And yet, I've run for an hour straight. I jogged 3 miles. It was only a year ago, but it seems so o o o.... fa a a a a r... aw a a a a y.
You may see an ad for the camera... I see possibilities.
Whatever we want is within our reach. Sometimes we need to first grasp onto something that leads us farther down the path to what we want. I'm reminding myself that.
Anja was as big as my start weight, and she can do, and does things like this kayaking in New Zealand video.
