Peeling Back the Layers of Me

“We must do the things we think we cannot do."
-Eleanor Roosevelt

I have lost weight, and gained it. I was always the last to finish the mile in PE as a kid. I hated running and swore to only do it if something was chasing me. Then someone put a bug in my ear. I tried it on my terms and discovered I loved the freedom of strapping on a pair of shoes, getting dropped off 24 miles from home and having only my will and strength to get myself home. Now, I am a runner.

Whew!!
I would have been so sad!
There is something so satisfying about putting a medal up in my office on the next work day. Not sure that a champagne flute would have gone over as well.
Of course, the chocolates would have....
