I like big challenges. Sometimes I scare myself with the goals I say yes too. My granddaughter and I are training with Marathon Makeover. We are couch potatoes, officially. The two of us love to lay on the couch with a big bowl of ice cream and watch a good movie. It has been almost 25 years since I was in shape. Remember Jane Fonda aerobics and leg warmers? I worked really hard and got into terrific shape, and then let it go, big time.
Last year I had a life changing experience. I went with a group of people to Colombia, South America and I fell in love with those people. I realized as I struggled with the discrepancy of what my heart wanted and what my body could actually do; that being a couch potato has a price. Being in shape also has the reward of freedom, the freedom to be strong.
How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. How do you run a marathon? You start by walking one mile. I can do that.
