Went to the gym today for the THIRD day in a row. I really enjoyed myself today! I walked two miles and jogged almost a full mile. Starting off to a good start.
While on the treadmill I was overlooking the gym below and there were several instructors giving lessons on self-defense. It got me thinking that I should try and take a class like that. I know I would feel more confident in my ability to protect myself and family.
I think I will sign up for a class. Yup. Decision made. Now I just need to find a good place to do it. The ones I saw were not exactly what I am looking for. They were mostly just doing the motions. I want someone to teach me how to break someone's arm if he/she is trying to abduct me. KWIM? I want to rip a handful of hair out for DNA evidence. Really. Why not leave a mark?
When I was in college I had someone chase me across campus to my dorm where I locked myself inside. That was some scary stuff! He was a fellow student in my class and a partner for a project we were doing. He had some sort of mental breakdown and decided that I was the one he wanted to target. If you know me in real life I am not really the sort of person to make someone mad, so I was confused as to "why me???". Luckily for me I had just graduated high school and was still in shape from years of running cross country. I was able to sprint pretty well.
Not so much now. But I am working on it since I am planning on walking/running the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer 3 Day in Chicago this August. It is going to be thrilling to accomplish such an event. I can't wait!
Want to join me? I am going to start a team for friends and family who may want to do it with me. My sister and friend Andrea are already signed up. I think my Mom is going to as well. Let me know if you are interested!!
