People are energy.

People are life.

Whether I’m running alone in training or running alone in a race, it can get lonely.

Sometimes it’s just me with no signs of life.

The mood can get low.

But then out of nowhere you see a human.

You see a sign of life.

You are not alone.

That’s a jolt.

It’s a spark.

It’s instant energy.

If that person cheers for you and encourages you, that is even more energy.

We feed off of people.

People are a pick-me-up.

Don’t underestimate your ability to make a difference in somebody’s life.

Something as small and simple as a smile, clapping, a thumbs up, a compliment, or some nice, positive words can and do make a difference.

Your energy and attitude can help people and motivate people.

You can give people energy and confidence.

You can make a difference.

So the next time you see somebody struggling, charge them up.

Remember, you are energy.
