Vision involves over 70% of the neural pathways of the brain. Vision is more than eye sight. Vision is the only body system that continues to develop after birth.
Some time ago – I can’t remember when – I shared here that one of my resolutions for the new year was to run a 5K every month. This year I joined a local gym and started running on the treadmill. I look back in my exercise journal and remember how slowly I started, how hard it was to go just two miles, and now I have upped my pace and my mileage.
It actually gets easier! But it’s one thing to stay in the gym and imagine yourself doing the Boston Marathon. Sooner or later you need to take the challenge outside and hit the road. So when a friend of mine told me about an upcoming “color run,” where people throw colored cornstarch at you during the race, I signed up and had a blast (although I mostly walked/ran). Then another race came up and we did that one, too. The great thing about Living Well (almost) 60 Plus and doing 5Ks is that there won’t be very many people in your age group and it’s possible to win medals. And that is just what happened at my third 5K this year. I won first place in my age group – and shaved 17 seconds off my previous best time. With this taste of success, you can be sure I’ll keep up that resolution – and clear a shelf for all the trophies I plan to rake in!
Live life like you mean it!
