Three Little Words

"Keep It UP"

I was running the trail today in the muggy soup that is KS, feeling sick and tired of the heat just hoping to get my miles done, when I passed a couple of cross country runners from the local high school. They were no doubt running their cool down or easy pace. But as I passed I said, "good morning" and their reply was, "Keep it up!" How lovely! Those three little words helped me finish out my run with a little more spring in my step. 

So, I am going to pay it forward to all you Roadrunners out there suffering in the heat, "Keep it UP!" And take heart, soon the weather will cool down. Oh, and when you see runners on the road, give them a "Keep it UP!" - those three little words may help them too!
