We ran together, and when one girl fell behind, we slowed up and waited for her. We cheered each other on as we tackled each obstacle; hearing each other's support and motivation was incredible. Some of us had only just met, and to be there for one another like that, when one of us could have easily kept going, made me realize the community that is Tone It Up. When we reached the end of the race, we ran, jumped, and tackled one another in the mud - throwing it at one another, smashing it in one another's hair, and absolutely loving it.
I showered off as quick as possible, but apparently not well enough, because there was still dirt EVERYWHERE. Unfortunately, I couldn't join the girls for lunch because my brother's graduation party was later that afternoon. Sal and I hurried home, and I jumped in the shower, leaving a trail of mud behind me.
All I can say is, who's ready for next year!?
