Ironwoman? Almost.

Alright, so here's the deal.
I hate PE.
Hate it.
Hate, hate, hate it.
I really want to do a sport.
Really, really want to.
But none of them really fit me:
cross country- i despise running, and i suck at it.
volleyball- the team already formed. and you have to be really good.
dance- you have to choreograph your own dance...that's not gonna happen.
tennis- already formed. and i don't think i have the skill.
basketball- .....
cheer- .....

as you can see, i am not really gifted in the area of athletics. BUT! My chum Zeinah is on the water polo team, and Rachel (Patla) is trying out...so I figured, hey why not? I am not very good at swimming for a long period of time, but I can practice...

So I did. Today I went to Altisma pool to practice with Rachel and Zeinah. I figured I'd suck.

Well guesswhat.
I
swam
twenty
eight
laps.
28!!!?!? Do you realize?
1) I haven't exercised in 3 months. No, but I'm serious.
2) The most I can usually do is three.

BUT I DID 28! I am so proud of myself. Soso proud. My coaches Rachel and Zeinah helped improve my form and everything. So I think if I practice a lot, I have a chance at actually being good at a sport and making it on the team! YESSS!

Now, I am aware that it is a vigorous sport that takes up a lot of time, but I'm willing to try it out and see if it works.

Watch out, world. Ironwoman is comin' atcha.
