I peeked out my bedroom window; billowy, ominous-looking clouds swelled the morning skyline. My iPhone weather app confirmed the obvious – 60% chance of rain. Despite the threat, my legs ached for a good outdoor run.
I once again gazed out the window, and then hastily peered down at my running shoes.
Wait…did that storm cloud just laugh at me?
I had two options:
- Hunker down with a bowl of last night’s spaghetti and settle in for some CNN Headline News.
- Take a chance on the rain and get my you-know-what into gear.
I chose option 2. And you know what? The sun came out. You want to know what else? I actually topped my all-time speed record.
Don’t let the threat of something bad stop you from pursuing something great.
