Earth Day: Saturquoteday or Something

11 Apr

I came across this quote when I was reading the aforementioned Wild and I loved it.  I loved that it gives permission not to be the best, as long as you complete whatever it is you have put your mind to.  I’ve though about it a few times when I’ve wanted to quit a particularly grueling hike (including the one up Mount Baldy that’s pictured in this photo).  It comes as special comfort today when I just completed a 5K that I was pretty sure I was going to have to walk.  Yeah, I think that Abraham Lincoln was definitely talking about finishing fun runs and hikes when he said this.  He has some ideas.  I think he’ll do good things.

    Exactly-you don’t have to be an Olympian…you just want to enjoy what you can do and do it well!
