I did it! Yesterday I completed the three hour Rack-A-Thon fitness challenge benefitting Rethink Breast Cancer. Track Fitness hosted the event and each participant blasted their way through a 1 hour treadmill/weight circuit, 1 hour intense spinning session and 1 hour power yoga.
The instructors are top notch and pushed and pushed and pushed me to do my absolute best! My legs are screaming at me this morning and all I want to do is watch a movie on the couch but my two-year old is making sure that I don’t sit for more than 30 seconds.
Toward the end of the spin, the instructor blasted the Melissa Etheridge song I Run For Life and asked us to think about who were dedicating our challenge to.
There wasn’t a time during the three hour session that I didn’t think about my very good friend, recently diagnosed with cancer, who has shown more courage and optimism and strength in the past year than anyone I know. She has always been an inspiration and will always be someone that I greatly admire.
