Becoming A Seal


Hooyah!  I made it through my first week of SealTeamPT!  That’s five mornings of 5:00 am wakeups!  Each morning got a little easier in my mind, because after all half the battle is telling yourself you can do it!  The initial stiffness in my body is simmering down a bit.  I can do this! Today’s workout was good–lots of Indian runs, push ups, triceps dips.  We used the playground out by Haines Point as our gym to do some arm hang leg pullups on the monkey bars. More crab walks and Supermans as well.  I’m starting to get the hang of all the tools one can utilize without actually having a gym at your fingertips. 

At one point I breathed in the smell of fresh pine and felt at peace.  I’m out here taking control of my health, pushing myself to new heights and meeting other like-minded and encouraging people.  I’m thanking my blessings that God has gifted me with a strong body and mindset to try something new. 

Rumor is that next week we will be going out on boats?!  I look forward to what’s in store!

About mileoneandcounting

I'm a young professional living in the Washington, DC area. Since moving here in 2007 I have honed a passion for running and fitness. Growing up I played soccer and softball (and tested track & field for one year). After college I ran a few 5K races, but running was really only a means to staying in shape for me. Never in my wildest imagination had I thought I'd ever run a marathon, let alone three. Nor did I think I'd get the running bug after doing so, but I'll admit I'm hooked! Over the years my blog has grown into so much more than a running blog though. Sometimes I have deep thoughts. Other times I'm simply sharing a training story or a review of a product. Here's the place where you'll learn about me through my many adventures--even I enjoy going back to re-read some posts from time to time. I've also been able to hone my love for health and wellness through my business called IDLife which stands for Individually Designed Life. I'd love to help inspire you to live your best life yet so please don't hesitate to reach out to me and may my words resonate with you. See you on the trails...
