Enjoy The Journey

Posted: January 18, 2013 in Uncategorized

Everything in life will seem easier after completing the Boston Marathon…but only the complacent will find any comfort in this. Most runners, particularly charity runners, will be inspired by the experience and will embark on even greater challenges and accomplishments.

Too often we focus on the destination at the expense of all the small details that define the experience…the journey. It’s difficult to balance our desire to enjoy the rewards awaiting at the finish line of the Boston Marathon and beyond with the commitment necessary to get there.

The daily challenges of preparing for each run teaches discipline and the importance of sacrifice and commitment. The reward is becoming healthier, more fit and getting together with the Marathon Coalition TEAM each Saturday to share in a common effort and to be reminded of the most important aspect of this journey…to provide opportunities that will improve the lives of so many!

Yes, I know that crossing the finish line of the Boston Marathon is the crown jewel and having the finisher’s medal is a prized possession. But those that enjoy the journey will not view Boylston Street as the finish line. The finish line will actually be the beginning of a much longer journey of believing you can make an even more significant difference in the world!
