Every time I run a race, the three things I want immediately after finishing are a bottle of water, food, and a massage. So when Stack Fitness sponsored the Rock ‘n’ Roll 10k, we brought custom water bottles, chocolate chip nutrition bars, and a massage therapist. Look at all these goodies. Makes you kinda jealous, huh?
I’m a nerd. I’ve always been one since I was a kid. I never grasped the rules of sports that other kids just seemed to innately understand. I lacked coordination, strength, and speed which resulted in me being picked almost always last for any kind of team sport. That was a regular experience for me since early elementary school all throughout the end of high school.
Despite my lack of physicality, my mom signed me up for various activities to keep me moving and not sitting at home doing nothing. I took tennis lessons when I was six, but it never stuck with me. Swimming lessons were a routine part of my childhood years though I never developed proper skill in the sport. Most of the time I struggled to do a proper stroke, and I ended up with a fear of the deep end of the pool. I no longer have that fear, and at least I know how to swim. Swimming was marginally enjoyable at best.
