i am a work in progress, and i am
in it with all my heart.

well. i’ve noticed that my lungs fill up so much more now! it takes a lot more to really get me out of breath. my heart, too! my resting heartbeat is slower and more efficient. i’ve also noticed a big change in my mind, it’s so much clearer after a workout. plus, my stomach! instead of craving sugary carb-y bread-y things like i used to, i just can’t get enough fruits and veggies. gimme all the salads and mangoes and strawberries. important changes all over! :)
i actually did! i won my first cross country race when i was in grade 2 and never looked back, haha. when i got into grade 4 my gym teacher started letting me come to the middle school practices (since there was no cross country “team” before middle school) so i ran cross country every fall and track through the spring. by junior high i was a running machine and was always leading the pack of boys during practices. i loved it because they had a lot of respect for me and admired that i was as fast or faster than most them, butttt that was around when the girls started hating on me, haha. they thought i was being a showoff by not hanging back and running with them (they all ran in little packs of 2 or 3 - it was required to run cross country in my jr high if you wanted to play basketball) because i’d be way off ahead on my own with the boys.

it’s not even the series finale and the office had me ugly crying for the last 15 minutes.
