Dance Walk

Saturday, March 30, 2013

The leader of a fitness challenge I am a part of for charity, recently emailed a link to a video about dance walking. I have watched this video every day for a week, wishing I had the courage to dance walk in public.

Since it was FINALLY sunny and felt like spring today, I went for a run. At the end of my run, as the nice lady on my Map My Run app announced my time, I did a little dance move in celebration. Then I remembered the dance walk video and for the last couple hundred feet home, I danced.

I felt completely rediculous for a a few seconds and then, I just felt really really good. I also thought about the Friends episode where Rachel was too embarrassed to run with Pheobe because she ran like a small child, arms and legs flailing around.

As Rachel learned by the end of that episdode, who cares who's watching. Let yourself go and feel happy.

If you have never seen it, here is the link. Go ahead, dance like nobody's watching....

Each day I count wasted in which there has been no dancing.

    I'm such a nut - I've done stuff like this. I actually got caught dancing through the office one morning my boss came in early (I open on Tues and Thurs and am USUALLY alone for about an hour.)
