December and 2019 Stats

As I closed out 2019 I had to rethink about the tough year it turned into with all the injuries and tough recovery periods. Yet, I am fortunate enough to keep moving, even if the pace and form are not what they used to be. I am grateful for what I get to do.

Do I always want to run?

The short answer is no!

Some mornings it is hard to get out of bed and face the cold or the heat or to deal with an injury or a sore muscle.

Like everyone else, some days I would rather sit by the fire with a hot cup of tea or coffee while snacking on something sweet. Or cuddle up in something warm and soft while binging on movies.

But I don’t! I get up and get it done. It’s not really a negotiation, it’s what I do. If there is a decision to make then I have a chance of getting it wrong, so it’s not something to decide, I just do it.

What are your non-negotiable items?
