#2- Get the Kids A J-O-B- This one is a double whammy! While the kids are at work, you can run your heart out, AND, they can make you some money to buy those new running shoes you have been asking Santa for.
#3- Forget the Running, Grab a Kid-Pack and Hike Your Heart Out- Nothing is quit like the burn you feel carrying your kids up and down the trail! Plus, a good, cute, kid-pack, is always a good chick-magnet on the trail!!
#5- Sleeping Pills- Just one little pill each will provide you with hours of "me time!"#6- Let Yourself Flip Out Every Once in a While- Sometimes you just have to let yourself gO! A good flip out each day will relieve that pre-run stress and allow your body to really enjoy the upright, straight-forward kind of exercise that is running. #7- Get Yourself a Goofy Looking Kid- Nothing makes you want to run away more than that funky little face that won't stop asking for ridiculous things like food and attention! #8- Forget the Run and Get Your Thrills Elsewhere (no not there Isaac)- Besides what's better for your heart, a good 30 minute run.... or a good 50 foot fall from a tree? #9- (For Dads Only) Help Your Kid Do Something Reckless, and RUN From Your Angry Wife- Nothing says "a good speed workout" like a mad dash from an angry mommy. Like provoking a hibernating bear, awaking a sun-bathing wife to the sounds of her 5 year old being pulled across the lake by a jet ski, will work wonders for you Fight or Flight response! #10- Meet a Hot Local Babe to Raise your "Get-In-Shape" Effort Level- Guys and girls alike are always motivated to run/exercise when surrounded by "hotness" from the opposite sex! For 12 years I have kept my Dazzling Diva as close as possible as she inspires me to run like the wind and always go that extra mile!
It takes patience to become the best runner you can be. Top athletes realize that running is a long-term sport. It is set up for people who value delayed gratification and who like hard-earned success.

Winning is not about headlines and hardware [medals]. It's only about attitude. A winner is a person who goes out today and every day and attempts to be the best runner and best person they can be? Winning is about struggle and effort and optimism, and never, ever, ever giving up.
