I really didn’t mean for it to happen, it just did. I had a great summer of running and somehow one recovery week turned into five. I think I enjoyed it too much and just let time slip away from me. As I write this, I’m listening to YouTube music videos after getting home from work at 11 this evening, but I can still feel the ache in my legs from a slow and uncomfortable two mile…(et-hem)…run. You could call it that. I did run. Exactly one mile, and then I jogged/walked home. Somewhere in November, my endurance and strength went the way of the buffalo.
I mention this for two reasons. Firstly, this blog lets you look over my shoulder at the canvas on which I plan all of Need Free’s happenings. Secondly, and most importantly, it is to encourage you. I was looking out the kitchen window this morning having just deposited my coffee mug into the sink. I got up rather late at 5:00, and sat in the office simply sipping and silently pondering the what’s and whys of it all. Once again I reached the conclusion that all my human efforts are to somehow embetter the lives of my family, friends, and all the rest that fall less traditionally into either of those categories.
I have what seems like several dozen ideas swirling around at any given time. Everything I see and hear is a profound source of inspiration if I choose to see it. I think everyone has a little different reason for doing what they do, but my wife and I started Need Free to meet needs in a simple way, but what has happened is that we’ve begun using a broad spectrum of social media to encourage and inspire. And it’s just the beginning. You are cordially invited to stick around and see how it all unfolds. We’ll need you, and we’re always looking for ways to cheer you on as well.
That is all. Have a great day!
