I'm dead broke. I have 26 cents in my bank account and about 30 cents in my savings account. Things are not looking good, yet I feel quite optimistic. 'Cause I just came back from a good run.
And one of the greatest things about the sport of running is that it doesn't cost anything! Whatever happens, no matter how bad my finances are, I can always go for my run. The opportunity is just out there, waiting for me. As I run out the door, Mother Nature gives me a welcoming smile and shows me all her good stuff. She holds me in her tender embrace and shows me what's really important.
And as I run along I just shrug at the thought of my tight finances and think: 'Who cares as long as the important stuff is free!'
Like love and running.
