Why Smile ? - Part 2

"Life is what we make it. Always has been, always will be."– Grandma Moses

On a personal note, whenever I am running, in one of my competitions, I make sure that I am using humor, smiling and laughing when I can. Sometimes, I’ll even yell or let out a loud noise relating to –“I’m happy to see you. “I must admit that there are times when I am very tired and find it difficult to yell but I’m never too tired to flex the muscles of my mouth upward.
For those of you, who require assistance in projecting a positive image, consult Patti Wood in Atlanta. She coaches clients by focusing   on their entire face. Her rates start at $1200 for a 3 ½ hour body- language training package. Otherwise, get in the here and now (present), look in a mirror and pay attention to what you’re projecting. Who knows, you might view something about yourself?
This bit of information is for all the athletes who experience pain. In a study of approximately 54 mostly females; the subjects were asked to keep their hand in near freezing water as long as possible. Afterwards, they were told they were part of an experiment that was going to evaluate different product designs. Some were asked to handle ibuprofen and the others microwavable noodles. Then the subjects again placed their hand in near freezing water. These volunteers-40percent of them (ibuprofen) stated that the second immersion was less painful than the first. 10% of the subjects who held the microwavable noodles claimed, for them, the second version was less painful. Okay, all you athletes, next time you’re in pain just hold the ibuprofen in your hand. I’m not sure about the glass of water.  Source: Wall Street Journal, March 30-31, 2013.
This past weekend we made plans to run from Beals Point to the Overlook in Auburn for a trail run for next weekend. . Randall, who is recovering from injury, agreed to be our aid station. Alpha hasn’t committed for the entire distance but Madhu and I agreed to run the 25 mile or so distance. Chris and Farah said they’ll run about about half the distance.10-12 miles of our trail run. After, we will more than likely have a picnic and then go to Starbucks for dessert.
The planning for next weekend occurred at Farah’s 40th year birthday party.  We were treated to an Indian-Vegan brunch of delicacies.  I’m so fortunate to have good friends. Remember, keep moving, laughing and smiling.
