A Rethinking Finale – The Shrinking Jeans of April


February 10, 2010 By april

So we’ve reached the end of another challenge.  Weight-wise, I report no loss, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t become stronger or grown.  Because I have.

We were rethinking our shrink after all.

So, rethinking over it all, I look and see that before this challenge I had never run more than 3 miles.  I never wanted to run more than 3 miles.  I laughed at my friend that has tried for 2 years now to get me to join TNT with her.  (Not because I didn’t want to raise money or a amazing cause because I HATE TO RUN.)

Now, here I sit in training for a half marathon with Virtual Team In Training with a bunch of my fellow sisters (and new dude!) and I’m going to run 13.1 miles.  I’ve told some friends and family that there is no part of my body that ones to run 13.1 miles, but every part of my heart yearns to do this.  To prove that I can, to raise money for a good cause, and to have this amazing experience with my sisters.

By doing this, by committing do to this, I will shrink.  I know I will.  And if that’s not getting stronger or growing, I don’t know what is.
