Can I make it?

Running really is very much like life. Sometimes there are obstacles.

The trick is deciding how to handle these obstacles.

Yesterday I was running along when I came across this really big puddle. I couldn't quite decide what to do. I figured I had 3 options:

  1. Try to jump over the puddle
  2. Go back
  3. Walk around the puddle

Hmmm... It really was a big puddle. And quite frankly I did nót think I would be able to jump far enough. And I really did nót want to end up with soaking wet socks and shoes and catch a cold.

So in the end I managed to walk around the puddle.

Because I hate going back.

What would you have done?

  1. I too am a runner and I agree running is a lot like life. In answer to your question, I would have tried to go around it too.

  2. That is an interesting thought. I have long legs so I would have tried to get through the middle section :) I see your footprints, you must have considered this route. That probably makes you a wise person.

  3. That is a heck of a puddle! I would probably have made my way round it though as I'm very stubborn and hate to give up on a workout! Thank you for sharing this thought-provoking post with The Hearth and Soul Link Party.
