Journey towards the pink of health

For the Pink of health. Literally.

On the spur of the moment, I enrolled for an upcoming marathon.

While at the back of my mind, I knew completing it wouldn’t be a challenge. Worst case scenario, I will walk and finish. But then, it no longer remains a challenge.

Finishing within a timeframe makes it a clear goal. And so I set a target for myself (plan B of walking remains).

To achieve the set goal, the actual act of running is needed. Not just once in a while but consistently. In other words, overcome procrastination. If excuses like “Oh I don’t have proper shoes” and “These earphones don’t fit well”, were not enough. the universe conspired too. Unseasonal rains !!

After a few “tomorrows” that never came, the deadline for no-more-postponing beyond this date came.

No matter what, I am gonna start today I decided and once again the universe conspired. I made the first move.

A healthy body and active lifestyle are no longer options but a necessity. That’s the ultimate goal. Marathon is a means to achieve that goal.

The way to get started is to quit talking and being doing

And perhaps writing too.

The path which takes to the pink of health, I took literally !!
