Perception, Attitude and Motivation

An observation about running long distances. I see the same thing happening as when I started riding my bike for longer and longer distances. They're not daunting any more. And what I am now casual about takes other people aback. They think my nine mile ride to work is a long way. And when I ran to work Thursday morning, they're amazed. I typically get this reaction, "Hank, are you crazy? Why would anybody run (or ride) to work? That's what cars are for."

And that's the attitude we need to chip away at. We can start by getting our kids used to walking, riding or taking the bus so it doesn't seem so alien once they're adults.
