I’m definitely not country, but yesterday I was line dancing.
It was called Country in Motion, a fundraiser for Connected in Motion (get it? Clever.) Organized by Humber’s post-graduate event management program students. Must say everyone I encountered at the various games and silent auction were really enthusiastic.
I ring-tossed, took photos with my fellow t1 ladies in the photo-booth, bid for yoga gear at the silent auction…
…and watched as people tried to tackle the mechanical bull…like this cowgirl. Eeeek.
The BEST part was getting to spend time with two t1 athletes- spin instructor Stephanie and Ironman-in-training Anne Marie. It’s always so fun to be around other people who ‘just get it’. We laughed, yelled loudly to each other over the country music and planned our future bike rides together.
Last year Steph both did the MS two-day bike ride and didn’t even know it! Better planning will happen this year for a meet up 😀
The highlight of my night was listening to Steph speak to the audience about her experience being an active type 1.
Totally inspiring and as she said, when we all get together, “Everyone has something different to bring to the table”.
So I was a little out of my element in a saloon, but totally at home with my t1 fitness girls.
