Runners 300 Decisions A Day
Did you know that we make at least 300 decisions a day?
That’s right, every single one of us will make small and big decisions daily. The challenge was, we can’t tell the magnitude of such decisions at the time.
We will make these 300 decisions whether you and I realizes it or not. Your health, career, finances, etc will depend on these later on. A scary (or happy) thought sometimes…
A highly popular motivational speaker and distinguished author started running one day. He decided to run to his front mailbox and back one morning.

A survey was made and the difference between a 25 minute run and 25 to and hour (or longer) run was found to be marginal. The first 25 minutes is big they found.
That said, how about joining others doing three or four 25 minute runs a week and make it one of those 300 decisions you’ll make…for greater health!
