.. I am about as good at keeping up with this, as I am being a regular, full time runner! Though, to be honest I do blog less than I run!
It is interesting the similarities between running and blogging. Both take a level of commitment. Both Blogging and Running can help one develop as an individual, and improve skills. Both can become habits that are good or bad.
Janathon had me start up with my running again, but I got sidetracked… again.
I read several bloggers, such as Detroit Runner, FueledbyLOLz, and Discom-bob-ulated Running, that post almost every single day. I don’t think it is any coincidence that these folks also workout/run everyday. The level of dedication that is there – shines through in both. (I don’t think its a coincidence that these dedicated folks are significantly faster than I am either! I think that dedication ties in there too!) I have to admit, it is one of the reasons I enjoy reading their blogs. That commitment is impressive in SO many ways, and the fact that it obviously ties in to multiple aspects of their life just makes it even more impressive. (The fact I have won contests from Detroit Runner’s blog is just a bonus! 🙂 )
I also have to a pause and say if you DON’T read those blogs.. You should go check them out!
Unfortunately, I don’t have the dedication that the previous three bloggers do. Now, I do realize that this doesn’t have to be a permanent statement. Willpower is, if you will allow an analogy, just like any muscle, It grows stronger with more use. Its not just this not-so-dedicated blogger saying so, you can read about it on NPR and Forbes! In fact, a quick google search will show you lists of ways you can “improve your willpower muscle.”
Just a rambling post to mention.. I’m back.. Again. 🙂
The irony being that you need to have the willpower/dedication – to do the “exercises” to build your willpower/dedication.
