    Sorry, can’t help you


    I was chatting with someone the other day and, long story short, a few weeks ago, a health care provider “strongly suggested” she get at least half an hour of exercise 5 days a week, and that last night, she was told she would not see any great improvement in her health until she started exercising.  This person was quite upset by the news; she told me she felt like having a good old-fashioned temper tantrum over it.

    I kind of stared for a moment, and then blinked as she looked at me expectantly.  I wasn’t sure what to say next.

    If she was looking for someone to tell her that yeah, exercise sucks and it is totally unfair that it should be so important to good health….

    Seriously?  You’re looking at me?

    A runner for just over four years, Karen has already completed a marathon, two half marathons and a variety of 5k and 10k races. She describes her first marathon - the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon last September - as "a nightmare." However, she met a very interesting person in the process - a man named Sydney who was running his 152nd marathon! Although the race didn't go as well as planned for Karen or Sydney, he showed her that no matter how experienced a runner you are, you can still have a bad day. "Does that mean we shouldn't bother to prepare, or maybe just shouldn't bother at all? Of course not!" says Karen. "In the end, it is what we make it." We like her optimism!
