So this morning my oldest daughter asked to come & help with the circuit and I was so happy as she is on holidays now & does not like to get up and out before noon. We packed up all the snacks for the get together, grabbed our water bottles & set out early to set up the equipment. As we placed the box jumps in the shade, set up the yellow pull up bars on the field, measured out the obstacle course I began to really get excited in anticipation for my participants to make their way to class & see the reaction I would get. I love to see them smile when they come upon a new challenge.
The next 50 minutes were so much fun and even overwhelming at times as I saw women push themselves in ways they didn't know they could. The team spirit within each group was inspiring and the support they gave to one another was moving. I know you may say it's just an exercise class, but perhaps just for that hour it meant so much more to those of us who took part. It brought me back to my amazing team at Fem Sport and how we believed in each other and looked into each others faces to show genuine caring & support. And also to my team at Tough Mudder who helped me push through some overwhelming negative emotions that I was carrying that day.
I live my dream each day having the opportunity to work with and be part of a team of individuals who constantly grow, share, support & improve together. The bonus to this day was when my daughter joined up with one of the teams & completed the whole class with them. They all made her feel special & cheered her on to the end. My heart was full and as we sat down to share stories and snacks as a community I was again reminded of how fortunate I am. Another day to be grateful!
