In training

Almost every day at lunch I walk with a co-worker (or two). These walks always lead to interesting conversations. Sometimes we talk about what we’re working on, and sometimes it’s about life in general. Recently the discussion has been about health and motivation.

We were discussing goals, and about how I wanted to get into better shape this year, but I don’t quite have the spark to get things going. Today my friend suggested I need something specific to work toward, like a race.

I realized he was right, and we decided on a run. On April 1, I will participate in a 5k. Training officially starts now.

My friend and I are taking two different approaches to training, which I’ll write more about later (once I solidify exactly how I’ll be training). But the main thing is this: I have a very specific end date when my training needs to be completed, and I need to get started yesterday.

I’m very excited by this. Given the name of the race, you could say I’m very eggcited. I couldn’t resist the pun.

Let the training begin!

    Hello Mr. Gruber, Writing a journal is a valuable practice. I hope to publish my journal from working with special populations. I think you will remember me from visits on Christie Street. I am preparing for my 18th RELAY FOR LIFE this coming spring. Naturally, I hope you are still interested in our Lawrence High Lions effort. We are already collecting!! We collect up until the June 8th event…….I hope this note finds you very well. Thank you for the past support. Sincerely, Bob Silipigni 785 842-2449
