Presidential Active Lifestyle Award

I just completed the PALA challenge [1]: Five days of exercising at least 30 minutes, for six out of eight weeks.

I’ve run about 72 miles (115 km), biked several times, and I’ve zumba-ed (if you just look at the instructor, and not at yourself in the mirror, you can pretend that you are an amazing dancer).

I’m pretty satisfied with myself. In absolute terms, this is probably not an achievement worth mentioning. It’s not getting me to the Olympics (@Unless you’re talking about the Olympic Mountains [2], in which case, it does get me there.@). But in relative terms, it is. I have become a much better me. I’m 31 years old, I finished grad school, I’m working full time, and I’m in the best shape of my life.
