Words That Move You...

It is really hard to find someone that has more "get up and go" than Olympian Jackie Joyner-Kersee. Did you know that she suffered from exercise induced asthma and still manged to win 3 gold medals in track and field. Joyner-Kersee still holds the world record in heptathlon, the seven event track and field challenge that includes long jump.

So if you feel you have been slacking a bit on the exercise front and focusing more on your aches and pains than your "get up go," hopefully her words will move you...







Ask any athlete: We all hurt at times. I'm asking my body to go through seven different tasks. To ask it not to ache would be too much.

Honestly, my running is improving by leaps and bounds from when I recommitted to regular exercise six months ago. I always know I have worked hard and am striving to far reaches when I feel a certain soreness. Instead of letting this be a real inconvenience, I am trying to embrace to aches and pains that come with exercise. I feel that I am only growing stronger and healthier.

Oh man, Friday was the first time in 8 years I picked up a bat and hit some baseballs. Saturday came and the couch was my best friend. I'm trying to get back out more often though, because I know that I'm going to ache a lot now, but when I start aching less and less, I'm bettering myself!
