when i first heard about it, i was so excited. it sounded SO cool and like something i could totally get involved with. a group of people who loved fitness, and believed in a healthy lifestyle! sign me up! but i kept coming up with excuses not to show up. i wouldn't make it to work on time, it was just too early, they were just too good/fast/intense and i'd be a slow little sloth.
a few weeks ago, i decided to stop finding excuses and to #justshowup. so i made a verbal to my friend andrew, and we met up just before 5am on a wednesday to run up and down the steps at harvard stadium at the 5:30 workout.
i only got through 23 out of 37 during my first day). now don't let this excitement fool you. this workout was tough. my legs felt weird for almost a week after the workout. but i wanted more! i wanted to get better!
guys. i drank the kool-aid.
the last wednesday of every month, the goal is to do a full tour. all 37 sections in your fastest time. so last week, i decided to give it a shot. i wanted to do ALL 37 in the 50 minutes we had. so off i went. it also helped that there was a nice pig waiting for me at the end to pet if i finished all 37 with a PR. i pushed through all the steps. i skipped the weekly group photo in pursuit of section 1. and when i hit it, i felt unstoppable.
plus, i'll be there at 5:30 waiting with hugs.
