Well, I'm coming into the final months of my training for my Spartan Sprint.
I must tell you...this has been the most fun I've had in a VERY LONG time!
Pushing my body to what I thought was the brink of exhaustion and to its breaking point...and then being able to push it a little farther, has been exhilarating! The confidence in knowing that my body will 'step up' exactly when I need it most (no matter what situation I find myself in) has liberated me like nothing else has!
And the friends I have met along the way...PRICELESS! Who knew there were so many demented people in the world! LMAO!!! ;-D
Seriously, the support and encouragement I have received from virtual strangers...who are strangers no more...has been the best part of this journey. From someone who had become jaded and very cynical (uhh, that would be me if you were wondering), this experience has opened my eyes and made me realized that I had not surrounded myself with enough like-minded people. (But then, I also hadn't realize that I was a closet fitness buff! LOL!) Live and learn....
Mental note: Exercising CAN be FUN! It's just finding the right activity...and the right people!
