Happy people learn that happiness, like sweat, is a by-product of activity. You can only achieve happiness if you are too busy living your life to notice whether you are happy or not. Frank PittmanI noticed while running the other day with my friend Julia and her dog.
That as I ran alone down the peak I came in contact with at least 200 hikers and a few runners.
I said hi to all of them and noticed that maybe 30 of them said hi back.
Really people ,does it take that much effort to be friendly. I understand people are shy ,or don't want to be bothered but come on.
The world would be a better place if you just took a second to smile back, you don't really need to say anything. A smile means hello as far as I'm concerned.
I just would never be rude and not say hi back unless I didn't hear someone. Even in races when I am feeling lower then low I usually muster up a grunt at least if not a smile to.
I was happy to be out on the trail with Julia and her dog Sophie it was a very beautiful day.
Today Rocky and I went to the first bench on Mission Peak, 3.5 miles round trip. He ran the whole way up the hill proud of that little man ;-)
I often feel Rocky and I are alike he is stubborn yet determined, and is always excited to go for a run. We kind of look the same, Short and compact ;-)
I am getting very excited about Coyote 2 moons 100 miler which starts for me Friday at 11pm I'm in the #3 start group. I would love it if you all could send me positive vibes starting then until Sunday at 10am since I should be finished before then.
