2018-09-12 - Use it or lose it

randy bridgesBy just knowing you are reading this, I can assume you are living a fitness lifestyle, or are at least working toward living one. Either way you have, or had, the courage to start. You made the hard first steps toward becoming a lifelong athlete and are reaping the physical and psychological rewards that come with it. Bravo! I recently met up with an old friend who could not keep up with our active weekend activities, fun physical stuff like a bike ride, swim, yoga, a hike ... Stuff we runners can do with little effort. He was upset with himself and the years he has neglected his body. The pain and frustration on his face and in his frustrated comments to himself made me realize how fortunate we are to be on the right path, to run for the pure joy of running and the satisfaction we get (or are beginning to get) from sweat and sore muscles is the fun part of our daily lives, not a chore, punishment or some dreaded necessary fitness routine... but the highlight of our amazing lives!

You are amazing, and will continue to be if you get out that door!

Randy Step, an admitted obsessed runner, hopefully setting a good example while living it up!
