I feel like a knight in King Arthur's court who just fought his way past all the conquered foes into the oppressor's castle. Now it's MINE to occupy forever!
It was a hard-won fight with running shoes and hurt knees, challenging intervals on the elliptical, exercise bands snapping back to leave bruises on my behind--but I'm the victor. Oh, I know at 139.5 I barely crossed the castle threshold, but I'm IN and I'm going to take over every room of this castle one by one until I'm comfortable in it. Make it mine.
Thanks to all my fellow knights who cheered me on through every victory and helped be back onto my horse after every set-back. Don't leave me now. In fact, you're all welcome to inhabit my castle with me--even as we all pursue our ultimate goal--maintenance--the most important chore for guarding one's castle.
Let's swing our swords in the air! Victory will be ours!
