Today I did the one thing that I am excited to do each and every time – I went running.  It doesn’t matter whether I am in a bad mood, tired, unmotivated, the weather is terrible or I have a million other “important” things waiting for me when I am done.  I NEVER REGRET A RUN.  So today, on National Runner’s Day, I made time to run with some of my girls on the trail.

And guess what?  It did what a run always does for me.  It made me happy.  Running makes me happy when I am with my friends and when I am running by myself.  Some days it is tougher than others to get started, but it is always great once I get there.  Even when it isn’t.  So my advice is – whether it is running or something else – find your passion, your inspiration, your center.  The thing that grounds you and makes you a better you.

Another thing I never regret is being involved in my boys’ lives.  We are so lucky to be able to influence our kids’ perspective and growth.  I finally have some soccer pictures to share!  Here is Dane at goalkeeper training.

We had Cub Scouts tonight and we taught the boys marbles games.  I never realized how fun these games are!  Good, old fashioned fun – no electronics.

It was a good day.  I hope yours was too.

So, I am wondering, what do you never regret doing?
