Worst in the Class, but Better Than...

I joined a gym.  It's hard to get up in the morning.  The people on the treadmills all around me are running far faster and much farther than I am.  I use 5-pound weights at the very most.  I cannot do a full, real push up.  Burpees are from hell.  My muscles ache, and I have found muscles I'm not sure I EVER knew I had.  I am UGLY when I work out--no kidding!

But I'm lapping the people who are on the couch and I actually DID the burpees and someday I'll be able to use an 8-pound weight and get through an entire class.  And this fall, I WILL run that half marathon and hike the entire Grand Canyon.

I'm not saying I'm better than you, but I am FOR SURE better than the me I was 5 weeks ago.  It counts.
