January 16, 2008 - For sanity sake, we all need more than one passion.
Yo run gang,
For sanity sake, we all need more than one passion. Its like having insurance or a diversified portfolio, when something happens and we cant pursue our obsession, we must have an option or - Yikes! May I suggest a well rounded portfolio of three passions, or should I say one obsession and 2 passions? The terms are close to interchangeable but life without one activity where you go over the line will leave you in the middle of the road - road kill. Ideally, two physical passions and one that you can pursue with most of your parts not working. Im talking about writing, reading, research or what have you, perhaps being a Civil War nut, you get the idea. As for physical, it needs to be aerobic and able to cop you a few endorphins, stuff like biking, swimming or paddle sports. These thoughts came up while I was on the bike a lot the last two weeks because of pain and that Im PATIENT DAMMIT! Anyway, Im back on my feet and getting in miles this week, whew.
Road Trip! Join me in Travers City the weekend of January 26th for the Bigfoot 5 & 10K Snowshoe race. No practice necessary, its just running with big shoes, slow hard running but just a riot, no learning curve. Lots of hotel deals and we all need to escape. Go to www.runsnow.com then stay online and grab a hotel room!
Get out and run, then sit down and ?
