My Lovely Wife saw this shirt in the store and had me take a picture. The saying isn’t new, but I like the “perspective” that the picture gives. Look at the NO!
In my life I am trying to make excuses rare, especially where running is concerned.
- I am not giving into weather.
- I’m not giving into pain (normal pain).
- I’m not giving into my head telling me to stop.
- I’m not giving into a difficult day.
I know that there are people “out there” that have a much harder life, more pain, harsher weather, overall difficulties that I am blessed at the moment not to have. I am healthy. I am running. I am eating. I am sleeping inside. I have a home, a family, a car, a Lovely Wife and great kids.
NO. I am going to make excuses a thing of the past. I may run till I drop, but I will make my goal. If I have to crawl, I will make my goal.
Running is cheap. It is simple. My time outside isn’t that much fun, but I have to do it and I have to run and I have to run outside. This is my life.
I honestly don’t know if I will make it to Boston or not. Sometimes I wish I didn’t create the URL 278toBoston.com. It seems to mock me sometimes. I run 4 miles at a 10:00 pace? That isn’t getting me anywhere.
But no excuses. I will get there, I will keep going. I will put on my running shoes everyday. I will go out of the house and RUN.
Boston or Bama. Whatever.
JUST DO IT
