"Be not the slave of your own past. Plunge into the sublime seas, dive deep and swim far, so you shall come back with self-respect, with new power, with an advanced experience that shall explain and overlook the old." - Ralph Waldo Emerson
“Excellence is an art won by training and habituation. We do not act rightly because we have virtue or excellence, but we rather have those because we have acted rightly. We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.” - Aristotle

You are NOT wasting your time. You inspire others, so in that way you are doing heroic things. Thanks for writing this--it spoke to my soul.ReplyDelete
Loved the post! Running calms my demons for sure. Being fitter enables me to be better to others--to help my mom carry stuff, or to take a walk with my dad, or chase after my niece. Plus by taking care of my health, I am caring for them too, indirectly. I never regret running, except for the time conflicts that sometimes crop up. ("No more marathons on my birthday!" says my husband. Oops...)ReplyDelete
