“Victory is won not in miles, but in inches. Win a little now, hold your ground, and later, win a little more”--Louis L’Amour
I went for a brisk walk/run this evening. Exactly 1.3 miles of walking and running (mostly walking). It may not be much in the whole scheme of things, but it is a beginning. Every great feat starts off small in nature and gets bigger with time. This is what I am hoping for.
Amazingly, the running part wasn’t so bad. The worst? My frozen ears. My ears, though warm to the touch now, are ringing in coldness. Next time I will wear a better hat. I knew I couldn’t be out for very longer as the sun was quickly going down and I had left my 12 ½ year old son to babysit (the younger kids think he is the worst babysitter ever). I didn’t have much time. I was okay with that. Keep it simple.
So I did it. I have begun. Hopefully next time will be longer, better, farther. Fingers crossed.
