    “Exercise is done against one's wishes and maintained only because the alternative is worse” ~George Sheehan


    Looked the author up:

    George A. Sheehan was the oldest of 14 children. He was a track star at Manhattan College, but did not renew his interest in running until age 45 while living in Rumson, New Jersey. He began running in his back yard (26 loops to a mile) and then started running along the river road during his lunch break wearing long-johns and a ski mask. Five years later, he ran a 4:47 mile, which was the world's first sub-five-minute time by a 50-year-old.

    One of the greatest pleasures in life is accomplishing a healthy lifestyle that most people thought you would never be capable of accomplishing while witnessing a supportive friend share in your joy. ~ Benjamin

    "There are two primary choices in life; to accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing them." ~ Denis Waitley


    ...would like this quote better if it included prayer.

    Friend, if fitness was truly important to you and really your desire you’d get off that couch and do something about it like your pants were on fire. ~ Benjamin

    If the saying goes early to bed and early to rise makes a man healthy wealthy and wise
    Does that mean late in sleeping late for bed makes a man poor sick and dead?

    You will never "find" the time. When something becomes important enough to you, you will "make" the time!

    We first make our habits, and then our habits make us.

    Fitness goals are fitness dreams with deadlines.

    I may not be there yet, but I’m closer than I was yesterday.

    I have two choices for tomorrow. I can be sore, or I can be sorry. I make the call
