Monday Morning Motivation – ask yourself…

22 Dec

running-motivational why

What got you started with running/cycling/swimming etc in the first place? Does that same goal still motivate you now? If you’re not already a runner, is it on your list of New Year’s Resolutions? Don’t wait – why not start now?

    Watching my sister swim a leg of a triathlon at a ymca camp. I had never seen her swim before–and she was a frigging human torpedo! I decided that since i had just gotten divorced and no longer played softball, i needed something. That is my story!

      Great motivation, Sandra. It sounds like you’re a great swimmer now – have you ever challenged your sister?

        OK – that might be a bit of a tough challenge. As for your niece, all I can say is that the smaller the child the faster they seem to go!

        She has taught me so much. Just a fee years ago it took me 35 strokes to get doen a 25 yard lane! But yes, i will probably never catch her. As far as her daughter? She has THE most perfect stroke i have ever seen. :-). And she is super competitive. After we finished she said, “once i saw you, I knew i could beat you!” :-).

    I just feel guilty if I don’t run… Haha…

      That’s as good a reason as any. I’m finding it really hard not to be able to do any exercise at the moment. I can’t remember the last time that I had this long off. Even my holidays are usually training camps! 🙂
