Challenge to you....if you dare.

I used to run. A lot. I used to run miles and miles

....per day.

I used to finish my run


do another set of things like: swim, rollerblade(that ended horribly), and walking.

I used to run in runs, for fun.

I thought it was fun. It was my meditation. I would zone out and before I knew it, it was over. It was euphoric and addictive.

(not to make you think I was some crazy sporty teen, I did indulge in a lot of B-King J-Box and other tasty treats to celebrate)

I wasn't skinny, I was healthy.

My Metabolism was good and I was in a very healthy happy state of mind and body.

Then I grew up. (literally)

How does one go back to what they once loved? How do they get there when they have a full time job, two kids at home and a barely there sleep time?

I will have to pick a day and slowly add to it. I will choose Fridays and go from there. How do I deny myself what is that good for me?

Cheer for me as I begin my goal and My attempt.

I am not doing it for weight loss (although that is always an added benefit, I won't lie), But I do it for healthiness.

So here is my Challenge for those of you who would like to participate:

Fitness on Friday.

I am not asking you to do a marathon so keep reading:

Will you join me in doing one fitness thing on friday, with me?

This means doing something (walk down to the mailbox if you have to), but be creative. Take a picture of your foot in the grass or your hand with a barbell in it. Then write about it. So good luck and I hope you will join me in the fitness challenge. For those of you who start participating, I will try to become more challenging, maybe even a marathon! just kidding. no marathon.
