Advil, aloe, and alcohol - I hurt.
so i did a good deed today. i volunteered for the Corporate Challenge for Kohls. Every year, corporations around here get together and compete in a variety of physical events with the focus on childrens events and children. So i volunteered for the following events: the tug-o-war, the 55m dash, and the 3-on-3 mens basketball.
i showed up today at 9:30am. i left at 6:45pm. not bad, but when you consider that the entire time i was outside, without sunscreen, running, pulling, and counting sit-ups for the kids in three-digit temperatures . . . i hurt. and im burned. my muscles are aching because im not in shape. well, round is a shape, right? i came in 7th in my group the 55m dash [there were 8 people] and my team went 0-2 in the tug-o-war. but its for the kids!
and now, im treating my wounds so i can go back tomorrow and do the same thing. basketball instead of tug-o-war and 55m. my medicine? you guessed it. Advil, Aloe lotion, and a smidge of alcohol.
