I’ve gained a few pounds since my school days.
Throughout high school, I consistently bounced between a 30 and 32 inch waist. Then, all throughout my time at Wabash College, I was able to wear the very same pairs of jeans I wore in high school. Heck, I even put on some muscle, thanks to the weight room at the Allen Center.
Then something happened . . . I graduated. I joined “the real world,” as my parents always said. I got a job, got bills and responsibilities, got busy and ultimately got new jeans. Bigger ones. The move from 32 to 34 then on was pretty hard, but I think going from being able to run an eight-minute mile with minimal effort to stopping to catch my breath after one flight of stairs was worse.
If only there were some way I could change that, some way I could challenge myself . . .
That’s right, I’ve decided to join what I’m calling “Season 2” of The Challenge!
