I HATED HATED HATED the fitness mile test in middle school and high school. they even had me do it in elementary school, but it wasn't a mile. I've just never liked or been good at running...
perhaps I should take cue from you to become better at it and do it right :) 2414 days ago
More special even than your really cool sentiment to be the athletic girl for yourself is the amazing reality that your blog post inspires people ...by being open and accepting....by showing a willingness to go the distance one footstep at a time... by defining an actual result beyond your wildest imaginings back when those "mean girls" invaded your soul... not to mention that your incredible tone, the joy in your accomplishment that wiggles with fun, that will cause someone to get up and DO SOMETHING they weren't planning to do before they read your incredible post and caught your growing fire. Nice! 2415 days ago
