Runner News – Important Announcements
March 5, 2023
Thanks for logging in, and Happy day to you!
Please check out the HDRC Calendar if you’re looking for a running buddy! There are lots of newly available runs!
I’m actively recruiting for runners that like daytime weekday runs, who can run in Greensburg area. Please spread the word!
“HEY, YOU’VE GOT A GREAT REPUTATION AROUND HERE!”
What a nice compliment! Personally, it’s one of the nicest things to hear about yourself. Professionally, it’s a message that people are noticing you in a positive way.
There’s a little thing that I’ve been doing since I started running with dogs. Before I ran with dogs, I was very into my runs. My distance, my pace, my route, my cadence, my heartrate, my music, me, me, me, me, me. I might as well have had blinders on during that time, I rarely interacted with other people, runners, or traffic, other than the quick nod or obligatory wave to another runner passing by.
But, one thing that I noticed right after I started running with dogs, is that people often watched me, and smiled. The dogs were not only making my time more enjoyable, but just the sight of us having a great time was making other people happy! So, right away, I began to make a conscious effort to smile and wave at every person I encountered, as my dogs and I ran around. They were already watching us, I might as well have a positive interaction, right? Every person in their car, walking, working in their yard, or behind the glass of a store front, every person got a smile and wave from me.
As time passed, my routine smiles and waves became a habit, and then something else happened. One day someone said to me as I was passing, “Hey, you’ve got a great reputation around here!” Wow! I felt like I could burst out of my shirt! We talked a second, and they were kind enough to tell me that they and the neighbors all look forward to the days that I pass through their little world, and make everyone smile.
Smile and be happy, and the world will smile and be happy with you!
Positions are changing! Angela is charging, she jumped up 2 spots since we last reported!
We’re heading into the first quarter mark of this new year with record pace!
Be careful out there, have fun, and tell your dog I said “Hi”!!!!
