Below is a short story I wrote as I was seeing a negative view to running and sharing what you had achieved on Facebook. I believe exercising can save lives and showing people how you’ve done is good also. It’s for children and I plan to read to them tonight and we will draw pictures tomorrow.
Daddy, why is he doing star jumps in the field? He looks funny, and that’s what we do at school in P.E. He giggles.
His daddy walks into his sons room. Looks for the Spider-Man quote that is printed upon his bedroom wall among the his Avenger pictures of the Hulk, Capitan America and Thor. He reads “with great power comes great responsibility” and continues. “What do you believe this mean?” he asks. His son reply’s “errrr, well, he has powers and he has to take care of them”
“That’s right”Daddy reply’s. “You also have the power to control how you feel and keep your health for as long as possible. You have the power to change your mindset whenever you feel a bit blue. Exercise is such a powerful tool that some many people have and it is only right you uses your powers for good. Inspire, motivate and build a happier projection of the world. You have to work on these powers to become stronger but with doing this you will slowly but surely push yourself harder and harder and then your rewards will grow great!”
“Ok Daddy, can you get out now please, I want to keep playing my computer now!”His dad laughers and says “keep looking out your window at the same time every day and see what happens with the man doing star jumps”
Days pass and weeks pass.
“Daddy” his son shouts. “Yes mate” his dad replies “ look what I can do” his son jumps down from his bed, he does 20 star jumps and then 10 press ups and 10 sit ups! “ wow that is amazing son, you looked like you enjoyed that” his son with a smirky smile says “ I kept watching out the window and the man would always have another friend join him shortly after his star jump finished, then they would push there watches and start running together. They always seemed so happy to see each other and I wanted to have some of them feelings also” His daddy turns to him and says “if you like you can come and join us tomorrow if you like” The sons jaw drops! “ with great power comes great responsibility son!”
