Things Worth Doing
I wrote about running yesterday which always makes me cringe just a little. I have been running for 19 years. I have done several races including a 1/2 and full marathon. I am currently running between 4 and 6 miles at least 6 days a week. All that being said...I am not a very good runner. In all that time and miles I have yet to get faster or better at it....see...not exactly the usual outcome of 18 years of doing something.
But the other day while I was somewhat grumbling while getting my running clothes together I had a thought...Anything worth doing is worth doing it badly...then I realized that may not have been my thought alone...thank you Chesterton.
But it so perfectly fit my thoughts it felt like my own. So what I am not good at it..? even the days when I feel like an elephant pounding the ground makes me feel better in many many ways. And when I do get blessed with a run that I feel like I may actually have done this before I know what a gift that is . Either way..I will not stop just because I am not that good at it, no matter how long I work at it!
