"Learn to live for the moments – not the events and activities of your life but for the breaks in between. Learn to love the process of pushing yourself, of hearing the rhythmic pace of your feet striking the asphalt or gasping for air as you race to make a pedestrian light. Learn to love solitude and the last rays of sun as it sets behind the trees or the smile your partner gives you as you both jog along at whatever speed your legs want to. Just learn to love being in the present."
And just remember, we're made to move. Tune in next week for Episode 4!
