I am a busy woman. I am a public relations executive, I help run a grassroots women’s group, I’m a mom, and I’m a wife. But I need ME time. And I take it when I can, which happens to be at 4:00am. From 4-6:00, I run and I lift. I swim and I sweat. I work on me, inside and out.
Sure, coughs and fevers sometimes interrupt it, a press release that has to get out first thing might keep me from a swim practice, but most of the time, that alarm goes off and I’m ready to go. I’m the girl bundled against the elements with the reflective vest, running before I go to the gym as it opens. I’m the girl rubbing sleep out of her eyes along with all the rest jumping in the pool that hurries home to shower, giving sleepy kids a kiss as they eat their cereal, yelling at them to hurry and get dressed…knowing I’m running late already because I stopped to talk to someone about T2 (that’s transition 2 during a tri… oh, the things I’m learning!).
Turns out — she did cross that finish line 🙂 See here:
