Thursday’s Thoughts

Resolutions.

It has always bothered me that people always make resolutions to do something for themselves…loose weight, work out, stop drinking, stop eating ice cream, etc.

Why can’t people make a resolution for themselves to help others more, volunteer, etc. Why does it always have to be ‘all about me’.

My thought is… make two resolutions… one: loose weight and work out more, two: volunteer more. Or even better, to combine the two… take part in 5k’s or 15k races that benefit cancer causes or environmental causes.

This Sunday I am taking part in a 5k to help raise money for our environmental causes. The race is called the Revolution Run. This takes place in Mission Bay and Fiesta Island. No only am I burning the calories that I need to use up, I am also helping the environment. What a great way to give back and also take for yourself.

I know all of you have already made your resolution this year, but I challenge you to make one more… one that benefits someone else.

Not Such a Mundane Monday

Well, this may not have occurred on a Monday, but it made my Monday GREAT! I feel so energetic and confident. Saturday at 5:00 is arose to my alarm (and my dog licking my face). Made a cup of coffee and ate my morning banana. Then out the door. This past weekend I participated in my very first race. It felt good. I plan to do more and more, and some day…a marathon.

If you had told me 10 or even 5 years ago that I would actually enjoy running, I would have laughed right in your face. But, today…here I am, running in races and enjoying every minute of it. Who would have thunk!

I feel great!

Something to keep in mind for those who run outside and alone (what I like to call ‘destination’ running)… Road I.D. Better to be prepared than not!

wear it when you run.
