Pushing My Limits

The Warrior Dash is coming.


September 21.

A bunch of us girls will be there looking like the photos in the link above.

And I am not afraid.

I will be ready.

Suddenly, my life has become full of challenges. Well, not full, really. I have two. Maybe three. But for someone–me–who has never been one to meet a challenge head on–three at once is a lot.

The Dash will  be a true test of my physical capability. I expect that it will challenge my mental and emotional capacity as well.

Training for the event at the gym  has been a challenge in itself. I’m up many mornings at or before five to get to the gym, and with the days getting shorter now, that is no easy feat for me.

If I’m not there before 5 am, then it’s after 4 pm. It has been nothing but work, work, work.

It’s making me very tired.

And then, there’s my writing. My blog.

This little baby right here has been a challenge that has not physically but  mentally, spiritually and emotionally,  pushed me just as much, if not more, than training for this upcoming obstacle course race.

Writing presents obstacles for me every single time I switch on the computer.

What am I going to write about?

How will I make it interesting?

Am I spelling everything correctly?

What about grammar, punctuation and dangling participles?

I have no idea what a dangling participle is. But I hope if it’s supposed to dangle, I’m allowing it to do so.

And this blog is making me tired as well.

Up until all hours of the night struggling-some nights more than others-to get the right words in the right order right  here on this page.

But for someone–me–who has never been one to meet a challenge head on?

I’m loving every exhausting minute of it all.


  1. That’s exactly how I feel about my blog! Well said! 🙂

  2. You’re doing a great job.I’m proud of you

    • Thanks! You inspire me to do better….
