I’m going to keep is short and simple today. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so I guess that means this picture is worth 1,019 words… or 981 if the quote detracts from the initial thousand. Now I’m getting off topic.


Dr. Seuss was a very wise man and ‘Oh, The Places You’ll Go!’ is one of his best books. There are a lot of messages in those pages. This particular Seuss book teaches us about the necessity for positive thinking. Everyone goes through good and bad times, but success depends on how you handle the things that happen that you cannot control. In the end, you hold your destiny in your own hands and you were made to do the impossible. But the only way to get started is to get out there, be adventurous, and see what you can achieve.

What does adventurous mean to you?

  1. I read on another blog that being adventurous is pushing your limits. This year I’m attempting to be adventurous by running races away from home. My upcoming marathon (Big Sur) is going to be quite the adventure. Especially after my less than optimal training!

    1. I can’t wait to read all about your Big Sur adventures! That race is definitely on my bucket list!

  2. Great reminder, Meagan!

    It’s so true, too: we can’t control what happens to us, but we can control how we react to it.

  3. You’ve inspired me to pull that book out, Meagan! And your quote is a great one — with all the things out there to distract us, sometimes you just need to get on with it and get it done.

    1. Dr. Seuss was so wise, because that book is applicable to a 4 year old as much as it is to a teenager graduating high school or college.

  4. I like to take at least one adventure every week. Mostly it is a change in route or maybe a visit to a park that I have not been to for a long time, or some new destination.


  5. For me, it’s anything out of my comfort zone. A new fitness class, trying new foods, just putting myself out there and seeing what happens.

    1. That picture came from a trail run. It was pretty neat… we were climbing and climbing up this trail and then all of a sudden we came out of the woods to find this high meadow.

  8. I love the Dr. Seuss quote and yes, staying positive is really important for every day life and for any kind of endurance sport. Thanks for the reminder. I think being adventurous means different things to different people.

  9. Oh the Places You’ll Go is a fave of mine! Adventurous to me means stepping outside of my comfort zone – stretching my limits.

  10. Short, but very much to the point. I think of you as being very adventurous because of all of your trail runs, many alone.

    Thanks for linking up!

  11. So true! Getting out there and rolling with the punches is important. Adventurous means trying new things like run the NYC marathon!

    1. NYC is on my bucket list!

  12. Dr. Seuss was a very wise man. To me, an adventure is doing something new. It doesn’t have to necessarily be thrill-seeking. Just fun.

  13. I think I really should re-read some Dr. Suess books. Wise wise man.

    I see from your sidebar you’re running Ragnar soon?
    Which one?
    I saw your WV Trail recaps, I’m hoping to run that one + DC this year!

    1. I am running Ragnar Trail Richmond at the end of April! I had a lot of fun at the WV one last year (I also did DC in 2014 and enjoyed that as well). The trails were pretty tough with all of the rain and subsequent mud, but you’ll have a blast. I hope y’all have good weather for the weekend!
