Why I Share

I am always surprised to see how many people visit my blog each day.  I don’t advertise and, well,  I’m really not that interesting.

I read other people’s blogs and they are really cool and the people who write them are so inspiring.

I mean, okay, I hope someone who reads my story will be encouraged to get off their couch and make some changes in their life and I want people to get excited about running and even have an adventure for themselves.

But really, I kind of write my blog for selfish reasons…

I write it to motivate myself.  I made a pretty drastic change from where I was five years ago (it seems like a lifetime ago). 

Some days are easier than others to stay focused and see the big picture.  Some days are harder and I have to push myself to just put on my running clothes and get out the door.

I even have days I want to fall off the “healthy eating wagon” and just pig out on junk food.

So I share what I’m thinking and doing to remind myself of where I was and where I want to go.  Sometimes I even get comments on my posts that push me out the door (although, you guys really don’t comment much – just saying).

Today is hot and humid and I’m about to go run in the middle of the afternoon.  As much as I love to run, this is one of those days… 

So here I am writing and hoping that I will get off my butt and get out the door.

That’s why I share…


  1. Get off your butt and go run. It's a full degree cooler than when I ran yesterday at this time. (I didn't stop sweating for hours.)

    1. I ran yesterday and today. Brought a fan to my office to cool off. Only way to stop sweating!

  2. Get out the door, Noah! And tomorrow, run before the sun comes up. It is just as humid, but not so hot. ; )

    1. Okay. I ran yesterday and today. Will run in the morning tomorrow. Looking forward to getting out of the sun :)

  3. Thanks guys! I guess I need to be careful what I wish for :)
