Last weeks have been very passionate ones, everybody who knows me, knows how much I love running, unfortunately I discovered this world quite late, I’m 43 and started 15 months ago, Yes I love running but I think I even love more when I can help people , when someone starts running because of me, when in the Endomondo’s social network I can congratulate people who has reached a good mark, I like knowing their own paces and I try to choose the right words every time in order to encourage them. The same I love when people realize mine ones.
As I explained in an old post, I got a one-word message by my Twitter account, and it was just a “Thanks” I asked about the meaning of that “thanks”, and it was told me, it was because she started to run because of my words, and now she is really enjoying every time, she is not a sports lover so it means a lot to me.
Yesterday I wanted to introduce my 6 years old kid inside this world, he knows I run but as I’m not with him everyday, he has never seen me running, so I thought it was the right moment, and after cycling about 10 kilometers together I told him about doing something different, and he says YES!! we went back home and I changed my clothes for a run, he joined me with his bicycle, riding at my side, pushing me up all the time, making me run faster, making jokes, having fun, for a few hundred meters we were running/riding in the middle of the streets and it was a nice feeling when the most of the cars stopped by advance patiently so we can cross safely, I thanked them all and they smiled us, it was such a nice “postcard”, the same with the people we crossed, I live in a small village and they are used to see me always running or riding, but this time was quite different. So there’s not any excuse if you want to run you can, everything has its solution.
It is said “food is the most extended anti-anxiety drug in the first world, and running is the most potent yet underutilized antidepressant” and I just can say, completely agree.
Let’s keep moving the world, we can make people feel better,
Yes We can!
