About 6 months ago my wife said to me I want to do something I’ve never done before.
For a flash I thought a personal fantasy was about to come to fruition, but wisely kept my mouth shut and remembered this was about her.
She said she wanted to take up running with the goal of completing a 5km run.
Which loosely translated means I’m looking for another obsession in life since I have mastered golf.
Six months of early morning mid week runs and weekends while the kids and I cycled beside her culminated this weekend with her first 5km run.
She completed the race in about 32 minutes which firmly placed her in the top third of 1500 finishers.
A pretty respectable showing for her first time, however I am biased.
What impressed me the most was my wife aimed for a personal goal in her life; and in doing so showed the kids, and reminded me, you can obtain your dreams if you are willing to put in the time and hard work.
Not a bad example for all of us….
What’s your next goal?
I’m Scott Thompson.
