100th post today!
The number 100 seems to have a lot of significance.
In boxing as with many other sports we talk about giving 100% of ourselves to our efforts. It is also a marker for progress. We speak of a president’s first 100 days in office as a measurement of success or failure. We use the 100 degree measurement to signify the boiling point of water in Celsius. We also often speak of the top 100 — say boxers of all time and consider a centenary birthday as a remarkable achievement as a much a testament to the human spirit to endure as to genetic make-up.
Thus, Girlboxing is proud, if humbled to mark its 100th post today. Not to say that Girlboxing is even remotely in the league of the aforementioned achievements, rather, the number 100 is a marker for an ongoing personal commitment to a daily something. To writing it down for personal growth as well as the chance to put out thoughts and ideas to the larger community.
Knowing that these thoughts and ideas have been listened to has been, well, humbling, exhilarating and a bit daunting!
Thank you to all Girlboxing readers and friends who have been so supportive of this blog — and of my efforts. I am astounded that the blog has gotten this far and again have everyone to thank for encouraging me to keep on going.
I found the following on YouTube — pretty inspiring stuff, it represents the first 8 days of a 100 day fitness challenge!
