Out of my comfort zone

Real Estate Agent
A couple of weeks ago I watched my children do a community mud run. I stood on 
the sidelines cheering them on thinking of all the reasons why I couldn't do 
it.. Bad back, aches and pains ect although I go to the gym often I couldn't see 
myself completing this challenge.  Last week my girls found another race to do 
and asked me to do it with them. I agreed. While running(walking) I watched 
people from not just my own community but from communities near and far working 
together, cheering each other on. It was as if nothing else mattered but helping 
the person next to you get through the next obstacle. I walked away from this 
event so proud of myself for completing this and over coming some fears but more 
proud of a community that brought people together--whatever their reason for 
being there. And helping a fellow neighbor through an obstacle
