Miz, I wanted to let you know I channeled you and the Bumbling Band this morning as I did my first 5k. I walked almost all of it but I know that another time I would have walked OFF the course and quit. I am my own superhero. Thank you.
Your superhero story? I’ll be using that as inspiration, likely even tomorrow. I have a HalfIron triathlon and it will be nasty weather likely due to Hurricane Bill. I need to be my own superhero! Stories like that make me smile through the pain and fear.
I did it Miz!!!! I joined a gym this weekend and I worked out there twice. While this may not be a big deal for some for me it was truly the equivalent of donning a cape and flying through the air.
Miz, I was MY OWN SUPERHERO this weekend by…Taking my 3 boys hiking for the 1st time in 15 years! Healthy lunch + good shoes + good company = SUPERHEROS!!!!
Heather discovered that LESS IS MORE! (**cue confetti**) & was also her own superhero:
Last year, I did the Incline Trail 3 times while we were in Colorado. I was running often, strength training, and working out hard 5 to 6 days a week. Had been for about 8 years. Since December I have done nothing but yoga, walking, & some hiking. My best time for the trail last year was around 55 minutes. I knew I would be nowhere near that time since I’d done no cardio in months, and I told myself I should be happy if I completed. However, in my heart, I was hoping for around 60 minutes. I finished in 51:04. Not quite sure how that happened…perhaps 8 months of rest has done this body some good! Crazy, huh? I know I’ll be sore tomorrow, but still smiling and my own SUPERHERO.
MizFit, I was totally my own superhero this weekend by totally believing in myself. I was having a moment when I started to doubt myself and what I do. Then as life would have it, I received a message from someone whose life I recently touched. Brought me almost to tears, and was reminded of the often amazing & positive impact I have on people’s lives. I looked into the mirror and just smiled…and believed. Believed in me and the inner beauty I was given, flaws and all.
