The bottom line is, I just run these miles for me. I don't think they're anything special. After all, I have an entire running group and blogosphere that shows me they're perfectly normal.
But to the average Joe, marathons and running a distance of 13-26 miles (and beyond) is near insanity.
A different thing happens at work. I do something good, I don't really want to talk about it. But damn it, I want the recognition for it. After so many of these "successes," I want to see the needle move or the $ on the paycheck rise. Do you know what I mean?
And do you know why I want to see the needle move and get some recognition? Because those successes I have at work are not just for ME. They're for someone else. And that's totally fine, but all the same I still want the shout out.
However you swing it,
And to whomever shared this via facebook today, it was JUST what I needed. Stop thinking you can't be in charge and you shouldn't be at the table. Your voice matters.
And any man who watches this - you are now required to put in EQUAL share of the housework and childcare you and your spouse may be responsible for. Okay? Thanks.
