I have two thoughts for today.

1) Yay, I seem to be getting faster.  Meaning that I run at a comfortable pace, and my heart rate is lower than I expect.  I have always fought to run slow enough... seemed like I could hardly do anything faster than a woggle before my heart rate was in the working-too-hard-therefore-going-to-bonk zone.  Sometimes it feels like that's all I'll ever be able to do; I guess I had enough trust though, (after all how many bizillions of people before me have written books about their struggles) and suddenly, I look up once in a while to find myself running. Like a runner. Like a comfortable and efficient runner. Yay.


2) I have found my calling in life... Acts of Kindness. Kind of a weird thing to say, but I'm determined that sooner than later I will find a way to make my living doing Acts of Kindness (Random and otherwise!). But for now, what might I do to combine my two fabulous hobbies? I train and I think of ways to make people happy, what puts those two things together?

Nice thoughts. I think that somehow RUNNING brings to our soul all good things and help us to get rid of selfishness and greed. As it is mentioned in the book "Born to run"... it makes us better people.
