This week on The Spin Cycle we were asked to write about the women we admire most be it in our lives or not. I’m talking about real women.
The first person that comes to mind is my mother. I can’t tell you that over the years, from childhood on, we butt heads…a lot! Even though we don’t agree on much I do admire her for her work ethic.
Back in the 1980′s when the auto industry bombed my father was laid off. He had to take a bunch of odd jobs in between unemployment before he was called back to work. During that time to prevent us from falling deeper into debt my mother added a part time job to her full time work schedule. This helped us a lot. Her “do whatever it takes” attitude to keep the family afloat is what I really admire most.
I would like to think that I have that same work ethic as well.
Others that come to mind are all of the great blogging ladies out there.
Allie (VitaTrain4Life) – One of the first people to really inspire me to try this half marathon. Her posts keep motivating me every day.
Jennifer (Wine To Weightlifting) - Weight lifting is my other fitness passion. Her posts on Crossfit training makes me want to go try it too.
Kim (Day With KT) – My biggest reason for my blog is not only to keep track of my daily training but also to show that age is just a number. Kim, who is my age, rocks her daily workouts. She proves that age has nothing to do with anything.
Amanda (Miss Zippy) – Another lady that proves age is just a number. She too inspires me to keep at this. Another one who is truly fabulous in her forties!
Nellie (Brooklyn Active Mama) – This girl can do it all. Juggle work, family, blog, and fitness all day long! I totally admire her that she truly can do it all.
Who are the women that you admire?
