According to Wikipedia, "falling in Love" is mainly a western concept of moving from a feeling of neutrality towards a person to one of LOVE. The term is generally used to describe an (eventual) love that is strong.
After doing 4 sets of 5k Bike Rides and 2k Runs where all those who participated encouraged me throughout the workout even though my sinuses were killing me, my throat made it hard to swallow, my coughing kept nagging, and the headache that compressing my head wasn't alleviated in any way by the blistering sun, I must say: IT DIDN'T SUCK! (or I may have just lost my mind completely-don't judge.)
Silently no one let anyone quit, and heroically everyone pushed themselves throughout the workout as if the world's stage was watching us kick to through the hidden back trails of Virgina Key to the finish.
As quickly as it started, the workout came to an end (though the middle 2 sets did seem to DRAG OUT for a little)... leaving us with accelerated heart rates, heavy legs, cramped bodies, excessive sweat, and an indescribable inner peace and happiness that shown through everyone's smiles (and the warm fuzzy feeling we all had inside).
Times didn't matter, distances didn't either (well, that's a lie...haha, they did but we just didn't dwell on them). We were all happy to be done...and that's when the plot thickened.
I already had a special kind of bond with these people that had just left their hearts (and some even yesterday's dinner and this morning's breakfast) on the bike/run courses, but today they stepped it up a notch. I was greeted with a trunk full of freshly made pastries, croissants, muffins, and freshly cut (COLD) fruit, coffee, and ICE COLD BEER-- a girl could get used to post-practice treatment like this!
At that moment, I realized that I was experiencing the western concept of moving from a feeling of neutrality towards this group of people to one of LOVE;)
Thanks for the great workout guys... NOW lets see how the ESCAPE TO MIAMI GOES!
