An Eager Want to-

An important principle in motivation...true motivation, that motivation that comes from the depth of the soul, that motivation that brings about a wanted change, comes from "an eager want to". This is a well known truth and leadership axiom.
Why in the world would anyone in their right mind want to run? Much less run up and down a hill? They've gotta be pure loco!! 26.2 miles? Are you crazy!
It's fueled by the want to! Think about this principle in all your dealings; with spouse, friends, children, and you'll gain a clearer perspective and maybe actually have incredible influence! What's the eager want to with them? How can I inspire an eager want to in others and myself? Lots to chew on there....
Today I did my 30 minutes and my 4 hill repeats. I actually did one in 1:59! That's one of my fastest so far. Rest tomorrow run 30 on Saturday , then I increase by 10% next week! I seem to have a little want to! Peace!

you are really taking on hills with a vengence, great work! My body seems to do well on hills but speed work is my weakness. Again great work on your progress!

Tengo Hambre!

    Man I got hungry while I was running today! I guess I forgot to take in enough calories! It cost me the last couple of miles some disco...
