Survival Of The Fittest


Yesterday my coworkers were joking (or maybe they weren’t) and suggested that they wanted to sign me up for a reality television show.  The question they asked:  “Would you rather be in a bikini eating worms or jumping from one airport to the next?”  I answered airports, which means I must be more of an Amazing Race kind of girl than a Survivor one.   Apparently they see a bit of hutzpah mixed in with my nice girl persona?   Is that what would catch people off guard?  Guess my secret is out!  And completing those early mornings of boot camp these last two weeks must have helped my reality television entry form—I could move around quickly from one spot to the next.  But all kidding aside, if it weren’t for the “everyone knows your business because you are on tv” I think I would get a kick out of some kind of show like the Amazing Race.  It would be an adventure and challenge; something out of the box to spice up life. 

For now, though I am going to enjoy the fact that I completed the two-week basic PT course! I made it through nine mornings of mostly cold, wet and tough workouts.  I did more push-ups and sit-ups than I’ve ever done in that amount of time.  More than most of the sports I played growing up, I learned that there is no “I” in “T-E-A-M”.  I’m going to join the group officially and enjoy the great outdoors as my own playground!

And this Bible passage especially resonated with me the other day.  I hope it inspires you in all you do.

“If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit.  Let us not become boastful, challenging one another, envying one another.” Galatians 5:25-26

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...
