Renew is a term that can mean so much. Some people may renew their vows. Many renew contracts. The theme is a form of commitment. A commitment to others, or even yourself. Like so many, with the new year, comes a renewed commitment to my health and fitness. As easy as it is to declare a commitment to betterment, it is just as easy to put it on the back burner. We all have lives pulling us in multiple directions. If we really want to follow through, we need to make that resolution a priority, not just a commitment.
Instead of viewing a day of the week, month, or even a year as your catapult, start today. Then start tomorrow, and the next day. When I say renew your resolution, make it a priority every day. Pass up that cookie and grab an apple. Take the stairs instead of the elevator. When you wake up each day, renew that resolution and your commitment to it. Every decision you make towards that goal is a victory.
As I spout of this advice, please note that I am human too. I renew my commitment to healthy eating and exercise everyday. Some days I succeed, others, not so much. However, I get energized as I am able to help others renew their commitment as part of my job. No, I do not work for a gym nor am I a personal trainer. I work for a replacement window company. Oh, I wish I could see your face right now. It is true though. I do love running, and my job has afforded me the opportunity to participate with running events like marathons, half marathons, 10k’s and 5k’s. Interested?
I’ll explain. Being an intermediate runner, I was determined to get my company involved with the running community. Last year, we were part of 25 races, although, that is not the impressive part. We also recruited and sponsored over 100 runners. We recruit runners through our Facebook page: Renewal by Andersen of Detroit. We pay their entry fee and give them this amazing tech shirt to wear on race day. Don’t be discouraged if you are not a fast runner. Speed is not a prerequisite. The runners we sponsor are dedicated, motivated, committed, humble, and fearless.
