Just Be You

“The greatest of people that have ever been in society, they were never versions of someone else. They were themselves.” -Niel deGrasse Tyson

Your heart wants what no other heart wants. It wants you to follow a path that has never been traveled before.

You are the only you there is. You are living a life that has never been lived before.

Yes, you will be inspired and influenced by many people. But you can’t do exactly as they did. That was their story.

You have your own unique, never before seen or lived, story.

Listen to what your heart wants and follow it. That is the only path to your greatness.

If you don’t, then you won’t be truly living and you will being living your life on a constant hold. All while your heart keeps thumping and tapping deep in you, for you to be you.

Just be you.

“Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.” -Dr. Seuss

    You can never go wrong with Dr. Seuss, and that’s a fact! Did my first 50K last weekend, Joey. Pushing past the 26.2 miles I’ve done many times in my life was a magical feeling, but I must admit that last six miles was punishing. I admire you and every runner who aspires to run 100 miles even more than ever. 50K was a great experience, maybe I’ll shoot for the 50 milers for my 65th birthday, 100 miles for my 70th. Be well, my friend. Keep running and keep writing.
