I prefaced this blog that way because the new improved more confident Mike attempted something 3 weeks and 2 days ago that unconfident Mike evaded since joining the gym in July 0f 2011.
Meet Mean Colleen.
The truth is Mean Colleen is not mean at all. She is a sweet heart but I nicknamed her this because we worked extra hard the second day that I attended because she ate ice cream the night before but we paid for it. LOL. Scary Mary is not very scary either. She does say things like "Get your head up or get your butt out!" I gave her this nickname because I can see the intensity in her eyes. Some may call it passion but I call it intensity because she is about business during that 1 hour class. I love that.
I dedicated this blog post to these 2 special people because over the past 3 weeks I was reminded that although motivation is within, sometimes it takes another special person to bring that motivation out of you and share it with others. Now I'm Spin It To Win It. My neighbor Katrina now spins, my Sister Dorothy who is here from Germany on vacation likes to spin with me now, my new friend Sylvia is now spinning at the YMCA and loves it. My new friend Sara, who likes to pick my brain, motivated me to write this blog so she gets a special shout out as well.
Please check out this link below to see a slight example of what a spin class looks like.
