Another run in the books! Today instead of listening to tunes on Pandora or financial news on Marketplace.com, I chose to listen to a TED Talk, on focused on discussed Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs (here's the link to the full talk).
So if you are unfamiliar with Maslow's needs, it starts with the basic needs, "physiological", this includes things such as a place to live, food to eat.... and goes all the way to "self-actualization", having meaning, or purpose in life.
When I started included running and training for endurance events into my every day life, I experienced the most advanced need of "self-actualization" by raising funds and awareness to cure leukemia and lymphoma, help battered women and children, and simply give those who are less fortunate the opportunity the deserve in life. It's an incredible feeling.
If you are interested in learning more about how running and endurance events can help you in your life, please feel free to contact me anytime through this website.
