Motivational Monday’s – A 50% Marathon for 100% of my Heart

Over the weekend I ran my ump-teenth 1/2 marathon in a time that I’m not particularity proud of. If we’re being 100% honest, I forgot about the race until about a week before and I really competed in it simply because I paid the money. Thinking about this way in the days leading up to it put me in a case of “The Mondays…” and not the good ones.

However, once I got there, I ended up being reminded why I run.

I run for my health.

I run for my children.

I run for my wife.

I run to honor my father and my sister.

I run for those who cant

I run becasue, in my own silly little way, it’s very therapeutic.

Now, I’m not asking you to become a runner, but I am asking you to think about why you do what you do. Chances are, once you remember why you’re involved in something you’ll have a much better time.

So take heed and smile this Monday, becasue at the end of the day- there’s someone who is thankful that you are who you are. And, if you’re lucky…you might get a medal.
