7 Reasons Why Not To Run
The Greek philosopher Epictetus said: “There is only one way to happiness and that is to cease worrying about things which are beyond the power of our will.” So rather than trying to change the world, I should try to become by happy by liking the world around me, as it is.
Since running is out of picture for the foreseeable future, I was thinking of some advantages of NOT running (or moving around too much) – and listed them below in no particular order:
1. No sweaty tech-shirts and socks around the house.
2. Enough time to read books and organise my PC files and folders properly.
3. Enough time to reply to private emails and to send out Christmas cards.
4. No stress about Christmas presents/tree/dinner.
5. No dark or cold mornings (no early mornings at all).
6. No risk of injuries.
7. A moment to STOP and THINK about the most important things in my life :-).
P.S. Week 31. I am soooo happy this is just a temporary situation!
Enjoy your last Christmas before your little one arrives 🙂
Thank you so much! Good luck to you in 2013!
It will be fine… everything has it’s own time:)..
I always remember magnificent seven: … The fighting is over. Your work is done. For them, each season has its tasks. If there were a season for gratitude, they’d show it more. ..Vaya con dios!
You will be back to running, soon.. Now enjoy this “season”.:)
Thanks, Magnificent Seven is an eternal source of wisdom…. Keep running!
Enjoy these late mornings while you can (= 8 more weeks) 🙂 Then you will dream about waking up early for a run. But it’s nice to keep a positive mind.
Thanks, Duri, will try to remain positive :-). Keep running!
You’ll be back before you know it, until then I’ll endure it for you! x Is V still running?
We’ll see. Every time I see my running shoes in the corridor, I get this strong craving…
V is not running anymore but still busy with her tennis training. She is in the 22nd week now herself.
Our household is getting a bit hectic :-).
22nd week?! x
Yep, so there are 2 babies coming. Don’t ask … :-).
That’s crazy awesome, you’ll be like two little hens about the house, haha. That’s so terribly exciting, congratulations to you both! 😀 xx
Thanks. It is indeed a bit crazy and VERY awesome. Not exactly how we planned it but I am sure we will manage… running behind a twin pram :-). Hope to have set a good example for you guys!
We’re heading to the docs on the 9th for our initial consultation so fingers crossed and here’s to hoping we have your luck! And lets focus the the energy on Papi getting two in her belly 😉 Help with the sums, how far apart are the two of you? x
That is so exciting! We will be keeping our fingers crossed for you. With us, there is 10 weeks difference. So V is now in week 22. Everyday I am pinching myself to make sure this is really hapenning. Girls, go for it!
