Cookie Time...

On my run, this morning, a woman was passing me and I am one that says "hello" and "good morning" to everyone - I think that helps to keep me going. Anyway, the woman was passing me at the 2-mile marker. I told her I was contemplating turning back or going for one more to run 6 miles for the day. She started laughing and said to me she was just thinking the same thing. We both decided to forge forward with the longer run. A woman ran by the two of us a short time later. She had perfect form and speed. I said, "I have been running for over 4 years and my form has never looked as good as her form." The woman said to me that she has a regular running partner that looks like a pro as well. She then said to me, "It does not matter how you look or how fast as long as you get to the finish." The woman then said that she and her friend laugh because she thinks of her run each morning as her 'cookie' run. Each day her goal is to run so that she can have a cookie later that day. She said, "I might not look as good as my friend but I still get to eat my cookie!"

This situation is just like business - it does not matter how you look as long as you stay on the same path of those that succeed. If you set goals and move forward towards your goals you will be a success. You know the saying 'Whether you graduate #1 from med school or graduate last people still call you doctor.'

Just keep your eyes on your goals and move closer to accomplishing them everyday.

Create A Great Day!

Fun blog entry. It is VERY important to reward yoourself when you "done good." Like I just made a post on my blog (I will NOT include the link here cause I am polite) and I have another almost done. So I am headed to Starbucks!!

Good thinking on rewards...and keep up the running---the reward for that is well, a healthier life!
