Hope for your financial life and beyond

Shout Out Saturday (3/23/13)

It has been a week of recovery for me as I have allowed my leg muscles to heal from the torrid (for me) pace I set at last Sunday’s half-marathon. It’s also been a week of reflection. It has been two years this coming week that I first laced up the sneakers and started running. Oh, the pain of that first run I will never forget!

I have come to truly appreciate the value running has added to my life.  I would encourage anyone reading this who is not engaged in some form of exercise program to begin today. Exercise will mold you into a different person – mind, body and soul.

Now on to some great reading from around the web this week. Have a great weekend!

    Thanks for the mention! And congrats on the 1/2, I’ve run a few myself.

  2. Brian, thanks so much for including me! Only a 5k here thus far, but I’m looking forward to doing more!

    • You’re welcome Tony. A 5k was my first race too. The longer races require more of a training commitment but I think the satisfaction level of completing them is also greater. Good luck with the running!

  3. One of these day’s I am going to train for a half marathon. Most I have done is a 10k. Thanks a lot for the mention

  4. Glad you are recovering Brian. Thank you for the mention, I really appreciate it. I need to get back into my exercise routine as I am starting to feel sluggish.

    • It’s so hard to get started with exercise. That initial month when your body is adjusting to new routines and dealing with the pain is really tough. It takes a lot of mental discipline to make it through that.
