I know how busy you all are. I will keep these next few blog posts short and sweet. I have so much to tell you, so it will be difficult to wait. But I will wait, so you get a chance to hear how my half marathon a month goal ended up. It's such an interesting story and I learned so much! And how the 100 mile challenge is going. I just love hearing from everyone who is participating. Keep going! And what's going on in Tread. Really great stuff happening on those nine treadmills.
I want to share this one quick story. A client stopped me after class this week to tell me her blood sugar levels were reversing. REVERSING. As in changing direction. Healing!! Listen, I love hearing stories of weight loss and fitting into jeans and all of that. But as someone with a chronic illness myself (I have kidney disease), I know what it's like to live with something going wrong health-wise. And I know what it's like to have fitness change the direction of the numbers. It is one of the most radically empowering feelings in the world.
That is what fitness is about.
Knowing what to do, and doing it.
Changing the direction of your health.
Feeling good about your choices.
Becoming a good choice maker!
Showing up time after time.
Doing the work.
Trusting the process.
