Six Aurora BayCare Medical Center employees have embarked on a wellness challenge that will change their lives forever! Over the next six months, these people will be coached, trained and transformed into triathlon-level athletes through the Aurora BayCare Sports Medicine Live Fit program.
So another week in. As a team we particpated in the New Dublin Dash – have to say I was pretty darn nervous going into the race since I did not know what Junius’s evil plan was. Well as I am sure the others may tell you – it was to run as a team and each of us take our turn leading the pack for 5 minutes. Guess what? She says I have the first lead – great now my nerve hit a new high. Everyone of us is at different levels and was scared that I was far behind everyone. OMG – everyone was great – the support we gave each other was wonderful – encouraging words the whole step of the way. And we all finished together – maybe not a record time – but we finished!!! To me that was a HUGE accomplishment. Knowing that all this training is paying off and all the support I have is amazing.
The ups and downs of this process – blow me away. Monday I lost all ambition for anything. Thanks for the support of co-workers I was kicked back into it on Tuesday. Not sure if it was the high of the New Dublin wearing off – who knows. All I know that is I am not really to give up on this training or myself. Missed Tuesday’s swim class – which is a bummer since that is one thing I really need to work on – hopefully will be able to get a membership somewhere to get the going. Fixed my bike tire – so weather permitting that is another goal.
Seems like a lot has happened during this week – but as long as I stay on focus will move on to next week!
