Who Moved My Cheese?

"To love what you do and feel that it matters - how could anything be more fun?"
Catherine Graham

Welcome to yet another week here in my mind!! This baby is only a week old and I have had a huge response from you all!!! You answered one of the questions I had in my mind when I started this... Will people follow? listen? Will this help anyone, me included? Well the answer to those questions is a resounding YES!! You are great. I never intended to do anything like this, in fact this is the first time on anything like Facebook or Myspace, you know the whole Blog thing. Now that I have met so many wonderful people, people who are trying to move their lives in a different path like myself, I can't see myself letting you down. That brings me to whats been going on in my life since we last met.

No one said that this would be easy. As you all know, I am training to run in my first Half Marathon on March 15th. This is a very important race for me because I can really see what I'm made of. Plus, its just the first of many (barring injury). I am really dedicated to finishing and finishing hard! Well mother nature has been throwing monkey wrenches in my training. I feel like something is missing from my day when I don't get a run in. Do you feel like that? HAHA I guess I'm a I ran my second longest distance on Saturday. I like to see how much pain I can endure for a long period ( someone has told me that thats all a marathon is ), so during that run I wanted to push myself some. Wylie tells me that if I have something left, let it all hang out!! That's what I did and my legs are still See if I listen to you again :) The main reason I felt that way was because someone "moved my cheese". So do I sit around and wait for it to come back? No. I went out to find more. "Grant Me The Serenity..." The issue was solved before I got to school. I just felt good to release that frustration. LOL...I hope I'm mad before the Half!!!
So this week I am going to be doing some work around the BOMF office. I'll take a few pictures to share with you. Once its done it will look really nice. Your all welcome to come check it out!! Just call ahead because I don't want to be the guy who made the BOMF office a tourist attraction, OR DO I? HMMM Well more running and more work to do this week. I invite you all to come out and run with me and encourage you all to join the team. If you can't run, buy a shirt to show your Back On My Feet Pride!! As the quote says... How can anything be more fun? I look forward to talking to you all soon and keep the comments coming. Peace and Love

Hey Isaac! I just recently learned about BOMF while reading my Feb issue of RW. I love the program and look forward following your blog and all the training glory! I joined the mailing list and ordered my first t-shirt as well, I'm excited for it to arrive in the mail! I am training for my 1st half as well. I am running the Big D Texas Half in Dallas, Texas on my birthday! I completed a full last January and it was the most amazing experience of my life. I love to call it "emotionally highjacking". I have since inspired my dad to start running marathons and he will complete his 3rd full next month and his 4th in April. I love hearing about experiences with training from other runners and sharing tips! Very proud of you, keep up the great blogging! Train hard to race hard!

Isaac, I just happened on to your blog. I don't really know how I got here, but I do know why I am here... I just finished my first half marathon (1/18/2009)it was a blast! I was pumped for weeks after, these are the REAL endorphins, the REAL THING not manufactured by humans. And the best thing realeasing endorfins is great for your entire system, heart, brain... I love how you are out there and will let others embrace you in your journey. Be well and be kind, others are counting on you!
