Never have I challenged myself this much (physically) as I have within the past month or two. It's all because of a combination of willingness and foolishness.
|Bay to Breakers, uphill, getting pumped by Biggie Smalls and Daft Punk|
|You know, just chillin' just stretchin' with my medal|
|My mini mountain bike|
|Channeling The Rock as I biked 30+ miles; constant stream of sweat - so sexy|
|Post-biking. You can tell I was sooooo happy to be off that bike.|
Intense hiking, bikram yoga, trapezing - you name it. I've been rapidly going through the list as if I don't have the rest of my life to get them all in.

|Just another day in the life of YFT - Climbing trees @ the Disney Concert Hall.|
As mentioned before, I think it takes a little bit of foolishness to do stuff like this. It overrides the fear. The fear of firsts and the fear of looming difficulties (e.g. getting hurt, feeling faint, being insanely sore).
Whether out of foolishness or the excitement for a good challenge or both, I'm not sure, but I signed up for my half marathon, will be signing up for a FULL marathon soon, and I really don't know what I was thinking when I did this, but I just signed up to bike from San Francisco to Los Angeles, a 7-day, 545 mile bike ride. I dunno. I'm crazy.
Here's to being foolish and enjoying life to the fullest!
BY THE WAY, IT'S THE BEGINNING OF PEACH SEASON!!! Peaches!!! NOM NOM NOM NOM. My ultimate favorite thing to eat!!! I've been waiting ALL YEAR.
|So rad. So freakin' rad.|
