Why Exercise?

Why exercise?

Seriously?  You live your life and you exercise and you don’t know why?

Or, you don’t exercise, and you don’t know why?

It’s dark outside, here in Central Florida.

And in a few more months, it will also be cold.

Yet I get up, shut up, show up, and just do it.

It’s time for a You Tube motivational video:

The World Championships aren’t about winning, they’re about doing your best.

Even if you finish last.  At least you got up, shut up, showed up and just did it.  No one can take that away from you.  No one.  Ya with me?

I’m gonna shut up and go show up and run in the dark.

At least it’s not cold this morning.  Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂

The Whole reason this is so Important

Derek Redmond was favored to win the 400 meters at the 1992 Olympics.  This video clip shows that no matter what the obstacles before you, you should still try to finish the race.  Never give up.

There comes a point in life, I believe, when we are faced with a tough decision.

But the toughness isn’t apparent.  It’s not life-threatening.  It’s not going to make us rich.  It’s not the end of the world emotionally if it doesn’t happen.  But happen it must.

If you didn’t click on Derek Redmond video clip above, you will probably regret it.  

Live with no regret.  That’s what this video and post is about.  if I have to explain it to you any further, you won’t ever understand it.  

Carpe diem, jeff noel, out in Lane 8.  🙂
