Oh my word, week 1 is done. Honestly, I'm not quite sure if I thought I could do it after Tuesday. I was sore and walked extremely slow. The encouragement has been remarkable. Gyms can feel imitatidating especially when these people are hard core athletics. Ha! Athletes. Kelly use that word to describe us earlier this week.
We laughed. I thought I am not an athlete. I have a long way to go to become an athlete but I decided to look up the definition of an athlete. An athlete according to Webster is " a person who is trained or skilled in exercises, sports, or games requiring physical strength, agility, or stamina". Well, by this definition we are athletics. Right now I create a daily goal of attempting and succeeding at one workout a day. Each day we (the motivated four) are building stamina and agility. Each day we are becoming stronger to complete life's race.
So the encouragement we received from each of you means so much more because it provides the soft drive to endure the day. Even more so from the J19 gym attendees provides us with a sense of belonging. It is more than "good job" in the moment but a "you are an athlete" you belong here. You are apart of our team.
Goal is to complete week two!
