I'm lucky. I try to remember this every day. We are all so lucky! I'll never forget Scott Jaime's words to me during my first hundred. He said that the hundred mile race is my victory, it's a celebration of all of my hard training. He reminded me to never forget how lucky I was to even be in a race like The Bear. Scott pointed out that because I am smart, because I am able, and because of my hard work I am lucky to be experiencing this.
Another way that I am lucky is that I get to exercise during my lunch break...I have a weight room right down the hall and am in charge of the university's employee fitness program and thus participate. Because I lecture about being a fitness leader and exercise physiology, my students don't mind if I have a bit of dried salt on my face... (at least they would never admit it).
The downside? Stinky feet. It seems like I am usually not far part sweaty and close to being sweaty again...I also walk to work and back. SO...I now have Squeaky Cheeks at work and use it every day in my sneakers. Even runners are known to lift weights, commute, and teach fitness classes and without Squeaky Cheeks I would stink a whole lot worse...I almost feel bad for my students... almost.
