Today, this blog is not about me, well not per se I guess. It is about how proud I am to be in a front row seat watching Kathy Griffin, my lovely and awesome wife, beginning to catch fire in her desire to be fit! Kathy is like me, and has sputtered and stumbled in past attempts to get started, but if these last 3 weeks are any indication, she is fully ablaze with a desire for fitness! I have to sit back and grin when I think about Kathy a month ago, and Kathy today. Kathy is by far not a morning person, or at least historically she has not been. For the past 3 weeks, her phone has been waking me up at 4:45 at least 3 days a week! Why you ask? she is getting up and meeting her friend Robin at the gym for morning workouts! She has also started going on Monday evenings with her mom.
But that is not the part I get the biggest grin out of. What I love is that she is suddenly very fidgety. Let me explain. As a general rule, at our least fit, it was not hard to find either of us. We were both generally in our chairs. A lot. But a couple of years ago, when I began to get fit, I was suddenly always hyper, always looking for something to do. I would clean or organize or sometimes just go outside and walk around. I am starting to get back to that mind set, but even better, I have been watching Kathy beginning to be edgy when she sits for a little bit. In this past week, she is literally killing me by doing everything and not leaving me anything to do when I get bored!
So Kathy Griffin, here is to you. Great job getting 2013 started off right. Now for me to try to figure out how to stay ahead of you in running!
