“A champion is someone who gets up when he can’t.”

05 Aug

Second one before nightfall? Well, maybe that’s how everyone starts, blogging zest or sheer determination to get around this thing – am worse than a greenhorn right now, second thinking every word i type or any icon i click incase i make that dreadful blunder that i can’t undo and make a complete idiot of my amateur self. So i’ll try learn and unlearn as much and fast as i can. This was headed somewhere, determination. Yes determination. For the better part of the summer, this has been my mantra *MTV the music channel has never made much sense to me – their shows are mostly lucklustre, with the exception of, teen mom *i could pay for an all Kenyan cast* and I used to be fat. No, not me, i was never fat but then again am not really skinny anymore. I commit not to digress  again in this post.

Determination, as defined in this show is nothing short of blood, sweat, pain, fall outs with family members and peers exhibited by the poor kids in pursuit of the ultimate going to college body.  The hell some of them studiously go through is meritable. The cherry on top is the outcome of the 99 days. Complete transformations that transcend physical appearances. That show has surprisingly motivated and inspired my very core. It all started with a 10km run in a local all ladies summer activity *Naisten kuntovitonen* losely translates to ladies 5 fitness comprising of a 10 km, 5 km and also 1.4 km run for the polite runners and makes inclusion for Nordic walkers *sauvakävelijöitä*. I proudly bagged that one, i had been training for some 2 prior months, did not really look like an athlete then *felt like one for all that* and i still don’t but am getting there. Ahead lies another 10km challenge and the ultimate half marathon scheduled for September *am in my marathon bootcamp’ enduringly.

So as i take stock, in absolute terms, the running and hour long interval cross-training sessions*i love these* have wracked up other aspects of my life. Areas that have been screaming unabashed change! change! areas that i have tuned out, marooned and straight out slighted. Categorically, i buckle under this newly found vital spark and soldier on deep into these uncharted waters for i am certain that in consummation, my fortitude will be fruitful.

I will re-visit this after my quarter and half september marathons. *military training continues* the before and after shots are well stored awaiting the apointed time.
