We had a new route today, a 5 mile course. Bob ran with me and pushed me further than I thought I could go. His story is pretty amazing. His wife started running with Nixa Running, and he really wasn't that interested in running with them. Then one day, his wife talked him into doing it.
He came once and kept coming. Started off slow like me, walking then running. Started running more and more, and now he can run the whole time. Last year, he had a heart attack while running, not because he was running. The doctors told him because he ran as much as he did, it saved his life. This morning, I wanted to quit and walk at one point, and he said, "If I can have a heart attack and finish my run, you can finish this." He pushed me further. We all need that. We get comfortable at our own pace. We always need to push ourselves to become better.
Thanks for running with me today, Bob! You are one of my inspirations!
Who pushes you? How will you be better? How have you inspired someone to be better today?
I also have some exciting giveaways coming up soon! Stay tooned!
