The four week challenge I was participating in just ended today, complete with an awards luncheon and all. I'm excited to say that my friend Dave and I finished in the top two spots. Places were awarded based on fitness score results compared to when we began. Dave and I finished less than a point apart, so I guess our little competition helped us out a bit.
I got first place, and along with a six month membership to both the YMCA and the Athletic Enhancement facility at the hospital. Dave won an hour massage. And, honestly, the thought of trading with him did cross my mind.
So, to date, I'm 10 pounds lighter, a lot stronger, and feeling a lot better about myself.
