Motivational Monday!

It is literally true that you can succeed best and
quickest by helping others to succeed.
- Napoleon Hill

SUNNY and 52' degrees today. I had a big ole cheesy grin pasted across my face for the majority of the day.
I was meeting the group I run with at 8 am. Because it was so nice out I decided to run up to the school. It is a little over a mile.
I get so excited to see all the runners.

Today we ran over 4 miles with hills and intervals.
These are not all seasoned runners. Some are beginners, some are newbies and some just love the idea of having accountability.
We had a new runner today. A very furry runner! One of the runners brought her Pomeranian.
This little furball, "Duke" took off like a champ but fizzled out after a little more than a mile!
This was a first for me...I ran down Academy road carrying this little varmint! I had to be a site for sore eyes carrying him like he was King TUT!

When the run was all over it was music to my ears to hear the group catching their breath.
They were tired but fulfilled.
They were out of breath but encouraged.
They were sore but stoked.
"I told you she would encourage you...." I overheard one of the runners say.
I too was fulfilled.

We are all created to be part of something. We have this vessel within ourselves that needs to be filled. Just a kind word or a smile of friendliness can fill someone else's' vessel.

I encourage you to be that person. Don't wait for the opportunity to come to you.

Distance: 6:68
Ran up to school to meet group and ran back home solo.
 I made some Minestrone soup today.
I used this recipe: Minestrone Soup



  1. After I read your post today I went out and ran and pushed myself harder than I normally would. When I reached my driveway completely out of breath and sweating ridiculously I knew that I succeeded! It was a great feeling! Your soup looks delicious, I made organic vegetarian chilli and it was so good! Glad to see you are finally seeing better weather! Carri~A Running bee
