Every Wednesday, the Deb from Deb Runs will be providing a word about which to blog. Kind of like a nice little blog prompt. Posts can be fitness or health related, but don’t have to be, so really anyone can play along. Just be sure to link up with InLinkz on Deb’s main post, and share the love by reading and commenting on other’s participant’s posts.
This week’s word is:
I’ve taught high school French. Then I taught K-12 teachers how to use technology in the class room. After that, I taught law school professors how to use various technology tools. Now in career #4, I am to learning so I can teach CPS caseworkers how to use a required a software-application in their job.
I have also been a Student.
Running has been my Teacher for the past few years.
What has running taught me??
Who would have imagined that a clumsy lady in her 60’s could run 13.1 miles!!
I have run in monsoon rains, sweltering heat and with broken bones. I have learned to never quit!
When I run and I don’t notice the wrinkles, bags under my eyes and the sagging skin. I feel younger than ever. I credit running.
Since I started running, I have done things I would have never attempted before. I’ve taken race-cations alone. I started hiking and done most of my hikes solo. Running has made me a more confident person. I have learned that life is short and to take some risks.
It’s not about pace with you run with a friend. It’s about sharing your common interest – running. I have learned that running with friends even if they are faster or slower is always more enjoyable than running alone.
Happy Running! What has running taught you?
