Competing against the World

My friend's husband Aaron is a marathon runner. He told me a statistic that I found very interesting. Apparently 80% of the world's population cannot run 3 miles without stopping. Now to the average person this stat would not be that exciting, but to me I was ecstatic. You see I can RUN 3 miles without stopping. I am in the 20%...wow!! What incredible motivation to get on the treadmill and kick butt:)

Whether you can run 5 miles or just run to the mailbox...I encourage you to push yourself. We can do more than we think we can. It's great to have a goal to stretch for. Now I wonder what other little statistics out there would be a self esteem booster??

Have a blessed day.
