You Are Not a Machine

Borg

You are not a machine.

So don't treat yourself as a machine.

Human Machines come in many forms:
An eating machine. An over-working machine. A television-watching machine. A workout machine. A boring, self-flagellating machine, stuck in a self-imposed rut.

Get off of your butt and and hit the trails.

Get some dirt and mud on your shoes.

See something natural, for once.

If your running is getting boring, get off of the pavement.

You won't be bored with trail running. And you'll feel better about yourself.

Happy trails,
Bad Ben

Sorry, I have to admit that I'm a flatulent, beer drinking machine.

At times I am, too. But at least we have "other interests" that helps keep our lives interesting, eh?

Another helpful hint: turn off the watch. Better yet, leave it at home for the run!

I agree w/ Kim. Be happy you're outside enjoying a trial run! Why try to hurry through it.
