I believe that positive attracts positive and negative attracts negative. I believe in the influence people make on each other, either good or bad.
My sister came to visit me at the beginning of last year, she was between jobs and moving cities. She stayed in our "guest room" a mix of playroom for my son and pictures / medals room for my husband Jeff Monroe ... and marathon, triathlon, 70.3 and 140.6 IRONMAN athlete. We have 2 medal racks where he keeps his finisher race medals, and on top of the dresser some of his favorite swim caps (yes, he keeps his swim caps!!!!! A topic for my sister and I to make fun of him.)
Night after night she looked at those medals, pictures and swimming caps. She started to get curious about the whole triathlon world (volleyball was the only sport she played growing up.) We both were doing the MY MODEL BODY® Game, to help get our cardio endurance, strength training, flexibility.... she bought a heart rate monitor and started to get excited about gaining some muscle and bringing down some pounds. Couple weeks later she went back home and signed up for a sprint triathlon (by the way, she won FIRST place in her age division.)
It's been nearly a year now, and she completed a couple different triathlon events. Now her main goal is a 70.3 IRONMAN this September! I couldn't be more proud!
And guess what???? She has her own medal rack now and keeps her swimming caps too!!!!!!!!
So, lets inspire someone to be healthy today????
