I write about running. A lot. I post things on my Facebook page that extols running. I read about runners, training, recovery and motivating stories about against-the-odds runners.
I will also talk to anyone about their running. I like to find out what people are doing for their training, what their plans are and always offer a lot of solicited and often, unsolicited advice.
Running is my thing because running changed my life. It transformed me. I can’t explain it better than that.
Now I know that running is not for everyone. Not everyone wants to run, likes to run or can run (for medical or physical reasons). And when I post things about running I hope that people understand the underlying message that movement and activity is what I’m really preaching.
It just happens to come in a “Now Go Run” package. With a bow.
So go to Zumba, hike the hills, walk in the hood, meet your friends at the box for a WOD, swim the ocean or at the pool. Find what is “your” thing. And keep doing it. Let “your” thing be the catalyst for a better, healthier life. Let “your” thing transform YOU.
Now go run!
