Don't depend on the rain

Saturday, March 24, 2012

I went to bed last night knowing this morning's walk group was going to be a "no show", since the weather guy was calling for rain and storms over night and into the morning -- plus the temps would be much cooler than the other days. That was my excuse to sleep in! When the alarm went off, I went to look outside at the rain -- but no rain. Ugh! I wanted to get back in the bed. This was a long week, including my gym time. However, I host walk groups. I can't not show. Why do I care so much about other people's health? It's not easy to continue to motivate others and get them to move. But I do and in the end, it helps me, too.

I get to the park and was surprised to see a few walkers ready to get their fitness walk on! They brought a smile to my face. They had energy and were ready to get it in. We had a ball and got 5 miles in trying to stay ahead of the rain. I am proud of them for getting out and thankful for their support. They had no idea that it was a "push" day for me. LOL! By the time, we got to our cars, it began to rain.

Glad I didn't depend on the rain to be my excuse -- only to be mad at myself later.
