I have said many times in this blog that I was never an athlete, and getting comfortable with the idea that I might (or might be becoming) an athlete now is pretty strange to me. I mean, it's not like I wasn't active growing up...I was just never successful at organized "athletic" sports. So, how does a non-athlete become so dedicated to running and crossfit? Let's look back at some amazingly embarrassing pictures of me and find out!
When I was very little I had a lot of energy. I liked to jump on and over things. I like to run around like a crazy person. I liked acting like a kid! I but I also took direction pretty well, and liked to be told how "good" I was at different things. My parents decided the best thing to do was channel my enthusiastic energy and let me take gymnastics.
I spent a few years doing the kid things: riding bikes, roller skating, playing games like dodge ball, kickball and whiffle ball; I even made it onto the tennis team in middle school, but even though all of these activities were fun, none of them were as fulfilling or as fun as dance had been. But then I found HORSES!
Better than yesterday!
