LBM might be following in Daddy's footsteps. Not the running around in his underwear and rubber boots part although men do seem to like to sit around in their underwear. But last night as LBM was heavily engrossed in using his little "knife" aka piece of wood to trim all the dandelions growing in and around the driveway, I could figure out whether that shows he will be like Daddy and get a horticultural degree or be a tree hugger like Mommy.
Day # 353 ~ 6.5 p.m. miles
I don't let the weather stand in my way of getting outside last night. I had looked into the face of that storm and I was not afraid! The forecast called for severe thunderstorms, strong winds and damaging hail to start around 7 p.m. I was a window and grabbed my shoes. I finished my 6.5 loop and was glad I had risked getting out. Not a threatening cloud in the sky...until later.
Did you know there is a USRSA (The United States Running Streak Association)? It is a National organization full of other
insane dedicated runners who have been running every day for at least one year, some of them have registered streaks of over 40 years. I suddenly don't seem so extreme, do I?
Whether or not I continue my daily running streak after completing my 365 days is yet to be seen but I hope that I have shown others that a commitment to purposefully moving your body every day is something every person can do. Whether your a full-time working mom or a busy over-burdened dad or a young person who thinks they always have tomorrow to care about their health today is the day to start the habit of good health.
