Spôrt: an activity involving physical exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes against another or others for entertainment. Add the strength & determination of a woman, and there you have FemSport.
As a novice competitor, at 40 years old, I didn’t think my body would allow me to compete, nevermind complete!
The supportive group at Fit By Design gave me the willingness to try and the desire to proceed with the competition. My heart raced, my emotions soared, I got to compete with one of my own..a daughter who experienced her first run beside me.
Being part of a team that placed in every division, was exhilarating! But being part of a community, unified by the same sport, was amazing in my eyes. I don’t believe one participant could have left that event feeling alone.. whether they joined as a team or individual, each and every person had someone cheering them on, encouraging, and acknowledging their triumphs.
Many memories were made, and cherished, and I’m looking forward to what I can accomplish as a Master next year.. LET’S GO!
