Happiness and a perception of no progress when it comes to marathons and half-marathons do not go together, but this perception can easily occur. Let’s look at how to overcome this perception.
I ran my fifteenth marathon last month.
It was the 2014 Chevron Houston Marathon.
My first marathon was eleven years earlier – also in January, and also in Houston.
It was the HP Houston Marathon back then, before Chevron assumed title sponsorship.
I hope that your 2014 is off to a happy start.
I’ve been working over the Christmas holidays on finishing the first draft of a new book for runners and walkers, and I hope to share news about it with you soon.
In the meantime, I’m taking a moment today to share some other happy news with you.
Happiness and rewarding what we like go together.
As Dr. Phil likes to say, we get what we reward, so it makes sense to reward what leads to more happiness.
If we reward what we like, then we tend to get more of it … and therefore are happier.
