The only way to fight excuses, I've discovered, is with excuses (sort of the fighting fire with fire philosophy). I've got to come up with excuses to run.
My current excuse to run is socks. Yes, you read that correctly, it's socks. Running socks.
Running hurts my feet and I've thought all along that if I could just find a good pair of cushiony socks, my feet would not complain so much. So now I'm running for the sole purpose of identifying the perfect pair of running socks. That's my excuse to just do it.
Who knows what will happen once I find those socks. Probably more excuses.
