Secrets of Success

High Five!



When I run on the trail behind my house, I often see other runners heading in the opposite direction. I've started to give them "high five". It's motivating to me, and most of them smile at me and seem to pick up their own pace as well.

    That reminded me of the times my husband and I would go for motorcycle rides. Always other cyclists would wave or give some gesture that made me smile. Truckers do it so why not get a smile while running. Love it!!!! - by BEARBOY921
