Over the weekend, I participated in back to back races. On Saturday, my daughter, Allana, and I ran in the Girl Scouts of West Coast Central Florida’s Thin Mint Sprint 5K. It was a gorgeous day and a well organized event (full recap soon), but this fun cookie-themed race became even sweeter when I placed in the top 50 females. For my efforts, I was awarded a box of Girl Scout cookies.
Then, on Sunday, I faced my fear of swimming in lakes and conquered the hills of Clermont at Iron Girl Triathlon. In the last half mile stretch to the finish, I passed an already finished competitor who stood as a spectator cheering for each of us as we ran by her. As I sprinted by her, she hollered “You’re looking FIERCE, girl. Way to take that finish. Keep it up! Finish strong!”
I did feel fierce. It had been a challenging weekend but I felt so strong and invincible.
I am a champion and you’re gonna hear me ROAR!
What making you roar this Monday? What music is moving you?
Starting next Monday, October 7, I will be sharing my favorite Halloween spine tingling tunes for Music Monday and I would love to hear what Halloween songs move your spirit. Link up and play along…if you dare. Muhahahahahahaha!
