Resolve reaps rewards for runners.

Running goals are sort of like promises we make to ourselves. If we follow through and make good on them, we reap wonderful rewards. We gain ground. We grow stronger and faster and healthier. We build muscles and lose pounds.

We may even find some serenity along the way.

Runderdog’s “Running Quotes by Non-Runners” for today traces that path.

“The woods are lovely, dark and deep.  But I have promises to keep. And miles to go before I sleep.” Robert Frost (1874-1963)

That’s one of my all-time favorite poetic lines – and one of the most quoted. Somehow, Frost’s words simply draw us into a lovely mental picture. It makes me want to slip on my sneakers and slip off into the woods for a trail run. Know the feeling?
