EricG's Running Tips #17 Listen to Your Kids - Dream Big
I recently read a post on Marshall Ulrich's blog about a 17 year old young man, Mart, who is dreaming about running across America. Not some day, but some day soon, like when he is 18. I love his pure, unblemished and matter of fact thoughts. Don't get me wrong, I think he needs to give this a lot of thought with his family and friends who will be helping him with the endeavor and train very very hard. This is a huge physical, financial and time commitment. I personally hope he gets lots of support, works hard and goes for it. Prove the doubters wrong Mart.
I guess the point of this tip is sometimes its good to think like a kid no matter how old you are. I don't care if its a mile, a hundred miles or a trip around the world. I am certain we are all capable of much more than we realize. "Dream Big, Live Big, Accomplish Great Things". You never know until you try. Peace
