I was definitely not an athlete growing up. I was raised in Rangeley, Maine - a small town in Western Maine which meant they needed me on the team to get the numbers.
I came from a family of really great athletes and I think the coaches expected more of me - the athlete gene just skipped over me.
I was most frequently awarded the 'sportsmanship award.' My little brother joked that they made that award up for me because they had no other way to celebrate my contributions to the team.
Mike... on the other hand was all sports, all athlete, team captain, and really good at football, basketball, and baseball... He generally is good at just about everything.... Tough too - he once played football through a broken collarbone.
I had no idea that I would fall in love with a personal trainer who was making his corner of the world better by helping people live their very best life.
