If you read the papers or check the internet during the day, it’s most likely you’re aware of the current crumbling of our country’s financial infrastructure. I read a statement the other day that said the collective losses for people’s retirement accounts topped 2 trillon. That’s when I decided enough is enough.
I am running a marathon in two weeks (less than, actually). My goal for the next 10 days is to eat well, sleep well, keep stress levels down, be with positive people, smile alot, run and treat my body as best I can, from the inside and out. What that means to me is this: Do what matters. In other words, make critical choices about what you’re doing. Say no if you have to. Conserve your energy. Cultivate positive energy. Shun negative energy and people. Avoid reading, doing, anything that is negative. I woke up today with a stiff neck after a very negative experience with someone yesterday. Is that a coincidence? I think not. So guess what? NO MORE.
You don’t have to be running a marathon to protect yourself like this. Remember, if you don’t watch out for yourself, no one will.
Yesterday’s run was short- 3 miles- and it was not super- stellar to say the least. Physical therapy today was aggressive but necessary. I made an appointment for a massage for the day after the marathon. Thinking ahead.
