I happily suffer from AAD (Adult Athletic Disorder) and have spent countless hours in the gym as a participant staring up (usually in awe) at the amazing people on display stage who gave me the tools to transform my life. I decided to take a huge leap of faith and become one of those people that I admire and got certified as an indoor cycling instructor. I wasn't quite sure what I was in for and honestly I was a little bit scared and a lot intimidated. But I knew that I had to do it. It is time to pay it forward. It is time to motivate, inspire and encourage other people to find their own "muchness." I took my classes, I read my books, I took my tests, and when I listen to music now it has taken on a whole new meaning, ie...this would be a great sprint, hill, interval, mountain, etc.
I'm just going to cut to the chase. This arrived today. It was only fitting that it came TODAY, because today was the day that I went on the instructor stage. No, I didn't teach a class, but I put on the mic, I sat on the bike with the mic, I played with the speaker, music, lights, etc...and it didn't feel weird at all. It felt, well, it felt right.
I started this journey 4 years ago because of MY three little birds and I know that I am on the right path, and that every little thing is going to be all right.
