My morning run

Wednesday, July 06, 2011

I walked out the door this morning at 5:30am and started out down towards Lake Michigan. I headed north to the soccer field and made the 2 mile turn. As I was approaching the turn, I passed an older gentleman who had the biggest smile on his face. I rounded the turn and caught up to him. He turned to me and said "I'm training for a race."

"That's so great," I respond. He proceeded to explain that he was 67 years old and will be racing a 5K in Wisconsin with his 69 year old brother. He specificially said, "it's only a 5K though..."

ONLY a 5K? That doesn't matter at all! He and his brother are an inspiration and it definitely kept me going this morning. It was so great to see how happy and excited he was to be out there. I can only hope that's still me when I'm 67 emoticon
