On Fun Running…

I sit here at school watching 4th graders run around during gym class and I see the joy i their faces. It is such a nice sight to see and it sparks a smile on my face. This is what I am doing as I write this opening paragraph.

Fun Fun Fun…..

Don’t make it a job to exercise.  Try to make it fun…:  A great workout partner or group, a dedicated coach or personal trainer, an energetic class, a goal to do something you previously thought was impossible – all these things and more can make exercise fun.  Exercise early or late, inside or outside, with people or without – but try to smile every now and then.  Things should not always be so serious.

Are you getting paid to exercise?

No – I am almost sure most of you are not getting paid to exercise.  So why all the pressure and glum faces?  The more fun you have, the easier it becomes – trust me.

Think about Phoebe Buffay on the TV show Friends.  She ran with one of the other characters on the show and had a very distinctive style – see below.  However her style, she had a smile on her face and had fun while running.   Think about the kids, smiling and running for fun.

Being able to run with friends, with good music, on a beautiful day, etc. is a blessing, so please enjoy it – it may not last forever.

Happy Running
