Running has obvious health and fitness benefits, but more importantly, provides very powerful benefits of boosting self confidence and helping unleash one's potential by breaking self created barriers one by one.
Attaining your goal in a race, or even over the course of a few weeks of regular training, can get you to attain a high like no other. Often, when you see your progress over time, and just look back to see where you have come from, you get amazed, as well as excited by the fact that – whatever you want to achieve, is within your control. A personal stretch goal achieved, gives a high far greater than any business stretch goal achievement. You are in charge.
"With ordinary talent and extraordinary perseverance, all things are attainable."
Sir Thomas Foxwell Buxton, British abolitionist

We all spend a lot of time working on how to get our company to grow and be more profitable. We spend some time on our employees and subordinate’s plans, we spend a little less time on our own career and growth plans, and perhaps close to none on our own personal plans and health; until the performance at work is not in line with what you know you can do, or the doc tells us to, by which time, we are a little late. But it’s never too late to start a bit of running and begin enjoying life by feeling fitter, younger, refeshed and energised, as that is the true way to unleash your personal potential and see life open up.
Fauja Singh in the UK, ran his first marathon at the age of 89 since he was getting bored and did not want to be sent to an old folks home.
“My younger daughter when 6, ran her first 5k run. I have run several marathons and been inspired by many, including a one legged runner with prosthetics, at the starting line of the Rio marathon.
I have seen fat, thin, old, young…… all doing the same fun crazy old thing…… Running.”
Running makes living worthwhile – weight, cholestrol, blood sugar, sinus and more… all get managed with running.

The great thing is that ALL of us have run at some point in our lives – chasing a ball, running away from the den in game, running to catch a toddler from falling over his first steps……
Everywhere we see more and more people running rather than walking, whether it’s on the roads, or in parks and gardens. Some with a professional look – all kitted out, but most, with the basics. An attitude – doesn’t cost much.
