“Champions aren´t made in the gyms. Champions are made from something they have deep inside them - a desire, a dream, a vision.”
These two (Ben and Jed) put me to SHAME when it comes to exercise. SHAME. I’ve reviewed both their blogs and am giving them a sincere slow clap because they’re both omigod-amazing! Follow them.
While reading their tumblrs I got the absurd idea that I’d like to “take on life” and by “life” I mean “gym.” Yes, Emma (I) would like to “take on gym.”
As my 5k is fast approaching (See goal here) I can’t keep coming up with excuses as otherwise I a) won’t reach my goal or b) won’t reach my goal, which will be super lame.
As mentioned, I’m moving downtown soon (insert happy dance here) which means I will have A GYM IN MY BUILDING. I repeat: direct access to a gym by just riding an elevator down 29 floors. Translation? NO EXCUSE. I’m so excited for this and you should be too, why you ask? Oh perhaps because Emma + gym = happy posts, as apposed to “Well Fuck” posts. True Story.
Ps The title’s quote? I could tell you which writer’s rhythms I am imitating, but it’s not exactly plagiarism, it’s falling in love with good language and trying to imitate it. (2nd True Story of the day)
