Fast Friday Mission!
Last week, my friend Greta of Gfunkified asked on Facebook if anyone used a running watch, and if so what their thoughts were…she was thinking of purchasing one for herself.
This really resonated with me, funny though it sounds, but running is very important to me and because Greta is planning to run FIVE HUNDRED MILES in 2013!
I happened to have a $30 running watch I bought at Target when I started training more seriously years ago. I haven’t used it in about six months because I downloaded the Nike running app for my iPhone.
So I sent it to Greta. I love running, and regular exercise has done so many wonderful things for me, my health, and my sanity (thereby helping my whole family). So I’m eager to encourage or support other runners or anyone beginning a new exercise regimen.
Do you have a hobby or skill and have acquired extra equipment over the years? It felt GREAT to pop that watch in the mail. Root around and see what you can find and pass it on to someone you know who is interested in the same activity. It could be scrapbooking materials, yarn or fabric, sheet music, a yoga mat, tennis balls, books you loved but are unlikely to read again in the next year. One of your friends, or a child or young adult you know, might be inspired by something you really aren’t using anymore.
Leave your mission accomplished tales in the comments and go brighten someone’s day!
