More and more, as I've become active and healthy, people around me are picking it up! This morning on a whim the night before, I sent out an invitation for a "5k Country Run & Breakfast" to a few people. Nice and early start too! And wouldn't you know it, there were 6 of us! All varying levels of athletics - and most had never gone on a 5k run; from 19yrs to 45yrs! But they all did it! And I could tell they were very proud of themselves! They all want to do it again!
Later that day, my daughter (10) wanted to be involved (she saw me do a triathlon relay a couple weeks ago and has been itching to do as Mom does) So we went out for a bike ride, just under 7k - I'm proud of her especially because she's starting off with the right mindset about health! What a gift to give!
What a wonderful feeling, now that I've reached my own personal goals, that I can encourage others to go for theirs! They complain, they sweat, they're sore..... and then they turn around and thank me for it with glowing faces! How awesome is that?!
