I love to listen to pod casts when I run. This weekend I needed to be out on my walk/run because I needed my peaceful time to myself. It was a grey, cold, windy morning. Normally, people would prefer to be cuddled up on the couch with their coffee in a warm home. Normal people do. I wanted to get outside. The temp was 25 degrees, a heat wave compared to the 10-15 degree temps we have been dealing with this week.
I started my walk with a mile or just walking to warm up my body and my legs. They are still recovering from marathon weekend. I was listening to the Two Gomers Run For their lives podcast season 6 episode 8 (link to podcast). They have been a favorite of mine and they are now working on a goal to do a full triathlon. They are just 2 dads, normal guys, who are working towards goals of living a healthier life and becoming more active. They have gone from running their first half, to their first full, to a sub 5 hour marathon, and now they are venturing into the triathlon world. They are funny. I was enjoying my time alone, laughing with (and at) the Gomers and learning as I go.
Every year for New Years, they talk about a one word resolution. I typically don’t play along with this, but a word came to me that I thought was appropriate for what I have been going through lately. So I am going to apply it to my year this year. The word is GROW. I am going to work on growing my running skills, my blog, my friendships, my work, my web design, and my creativity.
It was a rewarding, healing walk/run and I am looking forward to more growing time with myself to spark more creativity and new ideas!
Some of my other favorite pod casts are:
