Sometimes BRAVE means doing something brand new, sometimes it means doing that thing you’ve been putting off for months.
Every so often I have been posting about something BRAVE-ish I’ve done recently – to keep myself accountable to actually DO something AND to remind you being brave is not always lion taming and hang-gliding. There’s a lot of little BRAVE things I’ve been doing along the way too.
Making 2013 my YEAR OF BRAVE has been genuinely life-changing for me.
I have been participating in Elise’s #mileaday challenge so far this month!
First day I ran about half of it (including downhill right after leaving the house). My legs/shins/ankles were SORE for days afterward, so I just walked my miles.
BUT my little loop around my neighborhood is actually 1.3 miles so let’s just call it even?
I am not even a little bit athletic. Other than school-mandated Physical Education classes, I have never really worked out on a regular basis. I have gone on a hike here and there, but that’s really it. Making this tiny little commitment every day has been a 180-degree change from my usual computer-working, novel-reading, too-hot-in-the-house-to-clean life.
