Boating

June 27, 2012

When I told Joel we were invited by my girlfriend to go out on their boat and to the lake house for the weekend, he was extremely reluctant. Fortunately it fell around the time of my birthday, so I used that for leverage and he agreed to go.

We made the drive and arrived in time for lunch on the boat as Kathy picked us and our cooler up with the golf cart. We arrived at the boat with Kristen, Milt, Christy, Ron, Bob and the kids all awaiting our arrival, and just as quickly began our journey.

We all met through the gym and working out and running, and it is just another reminder of how much you can change your life by changing just one thing. Running has expanded my life in so many ways, and I'm thankful my husband has joined in with our group... tho I'm still working on him getting to the gym more often!

When the opportunity came up to go out on the tube, my first thought was "no thanks", but then I thought will this be something I regret if I don't do... so when given the chance, I jumped in the water and swam out to the tube. Just having them help me up on the tube was hysterical enough. It ended up being one of the highlights of my weekend, and I'm glad I did it!

Milt always clowning around was another way to keep us all laughing!

I set the timer and told the group I wanted to get a picture, and after dinner we played games into the evening. I don't think I've laughed that much in a long time!

The next morning we headed out on the speed boat for more fun. Its funny how we inspire one another. Kathy has been inspired by my running and began running half marathons with me, and I have always been inspired by her strength and ability to do anything she sets her mind to. Seeing her ski was just another way she continues to inspire me!

And we all cheered when her son got air several times on his wake board...

Such a great weekend that reminded my husband that sometimes when you step out of your comfort zone you are quite thankful!
