Saturday I ran my final race before surgery and I was hit by the thought “No Excuses!” I participated in the Run Thru The Rapids 10k for the second time and I was encouraged by how many young people also participated in the same race. And I mean young as in 6-12 year olds. Totally awesome and totally inspiring!
But it also made me think of how many times I hear older individuals make excuses as to why they can’t exercise or particiapte in 5k’s, 10k’s or whatever. There simply are no excuses! Participating doesn’t mean you have to be the best or take first place in your age group… you just have to get out there and move! Walk or run, just move. And follow the lead of our youth.
