I did it again...yippee!! This morning I ran another great time. Today my 4 mile run was done in 34:43...15 seconds faster than yesterday!! That's huge, for those that don't know. To cut a couple of seconds off your best run is good, but I am so excited that I did better than that.
Now, the challenge is thrown out there for you to accept. For those that want to join me in walking or running (on your own time and where you are, of course), please let this be an invitation to start doing something. It makes you feel so much better and when you feel better, you will BE better. So get up off that couch and start moving. You must make it a priority...and don't worry if you can't make it once or twice, just get back on schedule. If you decide to start walking or jogging, I'd like to know. Accountability is the key to staying with it. Keep up with your own time each time you exercise so you can monitor your progress. There is no goal except to do the best you can and DON'T stop! Make some time at least 3 times a week to work out. You can start out by going for so many minutes or a distance. In other words, 30 minutes or 1 mile. But do it! And be faithful to yourself...you're worth it - oh, yes, you are! If you have kids, bring them, too. You would be surprised how you can incorporate them in exercise without them being aware of it OR let them be your goal by walking faster or further than they do. So get out and get some fresh air and reap some good old healthy benefits. Try it, you'll find you're hooked before you know it! And the best part of it all?? It's free!! You can't beat that ... see you on the road!

Blogging Without Obligation
After coming across what seemed to be the 4000th or so post on someone’s blog starting with “I’m sorry I haven’t posted in awhile.” I decided it is time to rethink what makes a good blog and the expectations that have come to be part of it. I am thinking that no one should utter those words again . . .and with that thought I give you Blogging Without Obligation. •Because you shouldn’t have to look at your blog like it is a treadmill. •Because its okay to just say what you have to say. If that makes for a long post, fine. Short post, fine. Frequent post, fine. Infrequent post, fine. •Because its okay to not always be enthralled with the sound of your own typing. •Because sometimes less is more. •Because only blogging when you feel truly inspired keeps up the integrity of your blog. •Because they are probably not going to inscribe your stat, link and comment numbers on your tombstone. •Because for most of us blogging is just a hobby. A way to express yourself and connect with others. You should not have to apologize for lapses in posts. Just take a step back and enjoy life, not everything you do has to be “bloggable”. •Because if you blog without obligation you will naturally keep your blog around longer, because it won’t be a chore. Plus, just think you will be doing your part to eradicate post pollution. One post at a time. . .
