Last night, I did the unthinkable. I called the finalists that did not make it into this year's Healthy Challenge to let them know. It was tough. There was so many deserving people. I wish I could tell them all that they made it.
Most took it very admirably. I could totally relate, because I interviewed for the competition 3 times meaning 3 years in a row before I was selected. It may have been more painful to me than to them as I dialed each number to let them know.
I want to take them all into a Losers Club - you know because they did not get selected - and turn this into a real competition. I think all someone needs in the will and motivation. Obviously they had the will to change because they applied to the competition. I am so HIGH... that I can help motivate them and they can motivate each other.
I pray that this year's contestants are truly thankful for the opportunity and use it to change their life.
I have been up since 4:30am - for no reason. As soon as the sun rises, I am going to set out for a long run. We have a busy day ahead of us and I need to get it in.
We leave for the cruise tomorrow and I am worrying about running on the boat. Several bloggers posted that they had difficulties because the boat shifted - one even hurt her ankle. And if I cannot run, I am worrying about gaining weight on the cruise. I know both of these are silly, but I think that is why I am up so early.
Anyway, if you are racing today or tomorrow, leave a comment to let me know so I can pray specifically for you. Happy racing, y'all!
