I often have trouble finding things I like to do.
You may think this is silly. After all, everyone has their own idea of fun, so why should I be any different.
Well, the problem as I see it is that I just have more fun doing things with other people than I have doing them by myself. I guess this is pretty standard for many people, but for me it results in me not doing something more often than not.
When I find other people to do stuff with though, I tend to go all in. Take for instance this recent interest I’ve acquired in running. My sister is a big runner and her boyfriend Dan is a big runner. She signed the whole family up for a 5k on Mother’s Day and offered to train with us.
I was the only one who took her up on the offer.
How do I like it? Well, it hurts like crazy, but I enjoy it because I get to run with my sister and Dan. Recently she went AWOL on us because she herself is training for a half-marathon, so I fell back to my brothers to run with. They are stoked to come along for a run though, so we have that positive feedback loop going.
So I want this to become a hobby. I think it’d be cool to be able to run with my sister, brothers, Dan, and anyone else.
But I take it one mile at a time because it’s been something like 10 or more years since I ran the mile in highschool.
