I Don’t Wanna Grow UpPosted: October 12, 2012
Nobody realizes that some people expend tremendous energy merely to be normal-
If there’s one thing about CultFit readers that really stands out: None of us can be considered Normal.
Have you ever been out on a group run (anything else) and suddenly came up limp due to cramps or another issue? Then had one of your friends say, ” Is this normal for you chump?!?“
What may be Normal and unique to you is considerably different from another persons definition of Normal. This is blatantly obvious stuff here peeps yet we forget about it each time we close our eyes at night!
If you hang around or associate yourself with someone who is obsessed with their running times, weight loss, weight being used, shoe size, IQ (all solid examples)? The next time they start lamenting and complaining about not being able to put up Normal numbers … Ask this question and duck for cover:
“Maybe this is your new normal dude?!?“
Put the weapon down Dear Reader and think about what we are presenting to you for one fleeting moment: Our definition of Normal is changing all the time. A marriage here and a couple of kiddos there, suddenly you’re on the lovely side of 37. Last year you had a few surgeries and a few too many beers … You’re not the same person you were when you last defined Normal for yourself.
We spend infinite amounts of energy in the pursuit of getting back to Normal <— This friends: Keeps each and every one of us from moving —> Forward in our lives.
You know that feeling, when you’re lying alone in your warm bed, staring at the ceiling? It’s early morning, the sun is freshly up, beginning to shine on you through the windows. Everything is beautiful yet something is amiss?!?
A hearty Trail Run followed by:

Normal is a horrible word, be unique, be You! Have a great weekend peeps … ENJOY!!!
