Break Through The Mile Mark

Running is hard. We know that. It takes effort, our heart rate goes up, our breathing is labored, blah blah.

Do It Right Now

Nope. Don't wait until you finish lunch. Don't wait until the minute hand gets to the top of the clock or to the next marking on the clock. Don't wait until tomorrow. Don't wait until after this, that, or the other thing. Do it right now. Get moving right now. It shouldn't come as a shock… Continue reading Do It Right Now
