Fitness dreams

We recently relocated from Indianapolis, IN to Yuma AZ. It's funny because lots of people warned us about the hot desert weather. Duh, right?

We heard from so many people how terribly miserable we would be. We went for it anyway.

We've been here for eight months now. It's mid July-summer in the desert. I can now tell you that yes it's hot. It's the desert. But 115 degrees in the Sonoran Desert is not as bad as 98 degrees in Indianapolis. One word: humidity.

I look at this and I think about the other areas of my life. People usually mean well when put a damper on our dreams. But sometimes we have to take the challenge and go for it anyway.

Everyone telling you it's crazy to train for a marathon? Go for it! No one you know would ever do a triathlon - even better reason to do one! Dreamed of teaching Zumba? What are you waiting for?

Don't be afraid to take a leap of faith and do something you've always wanted to do. Don't let other people's fears hold you back!

You'll be glad you went for your dreams!
