I've always been athletic. For years basketball was my passion. This year the area recreation commissions offered a women's league for basketball. I played. It was a rude awakening for this thirty something baller, my body could effortlessly remember the moves of a once great player (kidding) but I couldn't make my body do it...
This once fit lady is now one out of shape momma.
After grumbling about my predicament to a fellow momma of 2, Leslie, we made a pact to work out every chance we could (being working moms it was going to be difficult). After we found our favorite workout class with Martina, we figured out we weren't going to make it for awhile due to the impending soccer and t-ball seasons we determined maybe we should run...run with a goal of the Wichita Kansas' River Fest River Run 10k.
So we ran and we ran and we ran. We ran in the rain, we ran in the wind, up hills, on gravel, with respiratory infections, through town. We ran.
Today is the day, we leave tonight, for our 7:30 am start time, tomorrow! The humidity is supposed to be 95% when the gun shoots. Quite a challenge since we've been training in humidity 30% or below.
Isn't that what this is? A challenge. Isn't that life?
