This is a part of the series of posts that tie back to the 11 Life Lessons I Learned From Running.
I had a number of reasons why I didn’t start running. Those reasons were negated, and I continued making excuses for a couple of months. Finally, my wife told me to just go do it. “You can’t write about not making excuses if you’re going to keep doing it yourself.” So a-running I went.
Once I began it wasn’t so bad. One foot in front of the other. Now that I have some running behind me, I really wish I had started sooner, so I could be better now. Time I wasted with excuses.
No matter what, the conditions will almost never be perfect. You won’t have enough money, enough time, enough support, the right clothes, the perfect location, cooperative weather, or corporate backing. You have to make do with what you have, make necessary changes as you go along, and in the end you’ll arrive.
You already know what you want to do, so get out there and start doing it!
