May God add his blessings to the thousands upon thousands of marathoners who will be running the Boston Marathon today for causes greater than themselves. If anyone struggles with starting and stopping an exercise program be encouraged to find a cause worth giving yourself to. I found Projectrescue.com that reaches out to victims of sexual slavery , Priority One Missions that builds bible schools, and a transitional center for special needs children motivational missions causes to train and complete distance goals. Everyone needs a 'cause', because some days you won't feel like training. These 'causes' moves you beyond your own 'becauses ' when your own body says 'no'.
FYI: These causes moved my wife and me to take 8 swimming lessons that resulted in Brenda swimming a mile last Thursday night. They also moved me to bike 20 k, run 5k and swim 800 meters on Thursday. For more information, contact me personally @ firstname.lastname@example.org, and/or purchase my book "Constant Forward Motion-the Running of the Lymphoma Ultra Series". It is found at various sites or just ask me and I can send you one.
