What motivates people enough to walk the path and stick to what they initially set out to do? I think that I have always suffered from depression and so running was my cure when I was younger (which became very addicting). But now since I'm at Master Runner's Age and my weight is way over and I'm out-of-shape what and how can I get this old carcass moving again gently enough that I don't hurt myself but with enough velocity that my spirits are up and that I feel like my life has purpose? I spent the last 2 and a half years in college and finally graduated this last month (which was one of my goals) but all during that time I only played with trying to get into shape. I was working full-time, trying to parent and do my studies.. considering I guess I did o.k. but it all has taken a heavy toll on my body. I walked today a very long way.. and it felt really really good to commune with nature. I am so hoping that I can get out EVERY SINGLE day and do something. I so wish to get this weight off!!! And to be able to run again..
