I will be honest and admit that I hate working out. Just the thought of going to the gym or exercise in any form bores me. Some people recommend walking on a treadmill but I would rather go to the dentist. Even walking outside gets boring after a few days because I have seen it all before. My mind constantly needs to be stimulated and it is was very hard for me to find some way of doing that. Then one day while trying to get work done around the house, I turned on my MP3 player and realized it helped block the random thoughts in my head about what else I could be doing. That is when I knew the only way to get excited about working out was to Get Motivated With Music.
Last Monday, like the rest of the country, I sat staring at my computer in horror, transfixed by the events unfolding before me in Boston. Explosions at the Boston Marathon. Who would do such a thing? Why the Boston Marathon? Why target the running community?
My heart broke for the runners, the spectators, the friends and family members who’d come to celebrate this iconic day and watch their loved ones triumph across the finish line. One of my first thoughts was that just two months ago, in a different state at a different marathon, MY children, MY loved ones, were waiting at the finish line to watch me cross. The thought is just too horrific to even consider.
I don’t have eloquent words to share with you today. Like runners all across the country, I commemorated the victims of the Boston Marathon by doing what I love to do – by running. Running in honor of those who can’t. While researching for this post today, I came across some really amazing quotes. So instead of trying to come up with my own wise words, I will let a wise, seasoned marathon runner, John Bingham, speak for me.
“If you run, you are a runner. It doesn’t matter how fast or how far. It doesn’t matter if today is your first day or if you’ve been running for twenty years. There is no test to pass, no license to earn, no membership card to get. You just run.”
“I am a runner because I run. Not because I run fast. Not because I run far. I am a runner because I say I am. And no one can tell me I’m not.”
