What a Team!

As most of you know, a few of us from BSI participated in a team "challenge" called the Tuff Mudder on Sunday. I have never really participated in a team sport. This was a first for me. I would like to share with you that not only was the "challenge" amazing, but the BSI team was a force to be reckoned with.

As the name indicates, it was muddy. In addition to the mud, there was electric shock, heights, walls, monkey bars, ice, water, 11.5 miles of running and, did I mention, mud. I feel that this race not only hit on the strengths of each of the team members it also identified weakness. Of course, since training at BSI these weaknesses were minimal at best. With that being said, the point is, it made a stronger team. It was great to see my team members not only help each other but others on the course.

Yeah sure, some were faster, some were stronger and yet others had the combination of both, but as we checked off each of the miles and the obstacles that went along with the miles, we still continued to work as a team and best of all, we finished as a team.  I was proud to be part of team "TBD". Additionally, I would feel privileged to be on a team with any or all of those individuals again.

I will share with you that even after a shower there was still mud in my ear. Today I seem to be more colorful due to bumps and bruises that are surfacing. As I locate another bruise, scrape and clumps of mud, I can't help but smile thinking about how I obtained them.

Now, find your own "challenge" and get out there and do it!
