A runner who looks well is 5 pounds overweight.” – George Sheehan
A few days ago, I saw a friend of mine who I haven’t seen in almost a year. When he saw me, he said I looked good… that I looked well. I know he meant well… but somehow, it just didn’t feel all right. 😀 Then while reading through some magazines, I came upon this quotation from George Sheehan, a doctor-runner-philosopher.
So I went to the bathroom scales and weighed myself… and lo and behold, I was indeed around 5 pounds over my ideal running weight! Amazing!
Well, I guess that’s what happens when instead of going out for a quick morning run, I would often opt to stay one more hour under the sheets pushing the snooze button of my cellphone… or instead of saying no to an offered slice of a luscious cake, I immediately grab my fork and gobble up the sweet treat quickly!
It’s time to work my ass off… 😀
