No. More. Excuses.

Excuses are Like Opinions, & You Know What They Say About Opinions…

“Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.”

~Arthur Ashe

How many times have you wanted to do something (running or otherwise), but didn’t because you weren’t ready to start today or didn’t have all of the tools/knowledge you’d need to get the job done or because the something just seemed to be too much?

You don’t have to publicly shame yourself today, but it’s worth thinking about all of the times we’ve made excuses to stop us from taking action towards our goals/dreams/desires.

Actions Trump Excuses. Every. Single. Time.

Since I talked to Gary Stotler for the podcast a few weeks ago, I’ve been thinking about some of the parts of his journey.

Remember how he said it took him 18 months to take his first running steps?

18 fricking months! Are you kidding me?

When he got started on his mission to turn his health around, he didn’t waste time making excuses.

No. More. Excuses.

No. More. Excuses.

Gary started where he was. Read more

The Human Machine

The Human Machine

“The Human Body is Capable of Amazing Physical Deeds.”

~Dean Karnazes

The Human Machine

The Human Machine

Have you ever stopped to think about how amazing the human machine actually is?

Never mind all of the truly incredible stuff our bodies do on a daily basis without us consciously thinking about the task for one second (breathing, heart beating, cellular repair, digestion, hormone secretion, etc.), how about the things that we actually do think about?

  • Want to run a faster marathon time? Put in the training and your body will respond accordingly.
  • Want to PR in the 5k? Same thing. Your body will respond and adapt to the demands that you put on it.

For all of the abuse we put our bodies through (fast food, alcohol, sun exposure, sedentary jobs, etc), if you think about it our bodies are incredibly resilient. If we treated our cars or computers the same way we treat our bodies, there is no way they’d last more than a few months.

Yet the human machine takes all of our abuse and runs smoothly for decades.

It is true, the human body IS capable of amazing physical deeds.
