Destination Running And Goals

     I don't consider myself much of a runner. I didn't start until December 5th 2010. That was the day after I received a diagnosis of Diabetes II and realized I could lose a limb if I wasn't careful.  I started working on it immediately.  On June 9th, 2012 the same doctor reversed the diagnosis.  I never took medication after the first week.  It was all diet and exercise.
    To say I don't consider myself much of a runner is not to say that I don't run.  I completed my first half marathon on July 14th, 2012 and am planning on running a full marathon in November.
     But I just don't like it that much, most of the time.  I don't experience very much of the highs that other runners talk about.  Unless I trick myself into running, sometimes I just won't do it. Destination running is one of those tricks.
     Basically, it's exactly what it says.  Rather than running on a treadmill, or in a circle somewhere...I run to places.  Like grocery shopping this morning at 5:30. I ran to the grocery store to pick up Coffee Creamer.  3.85 miles.  On Fridays, I run to the men's prayer breakfast 8.8 miles away.  I get a ride back from anybody willing to give me one.  Everybody there supports the changes I've made and support me in what I'm working on.
     The reason destination running works is a simple one.  It meets the requirements of all successful projects, both personal and business.

  1. You set a goal.
  2. You reach that goal.
  3. You celebrate your success.
  4. You set another goal. 
  5. You start moving forward again.
It's not rocket surgeon stuff.  You don't need to be a professional to try this at home.  Just get to it. 
Press On.
