What does it take to be a superhero?
Today, I looked into it. My friend, Libby, sent me a link to this upcoming race. It’s not your typical 5k jaunt around the block. This is the Superhero Scramble.
- Jumping over fire
- Swimming channels
- Sliding through mud
- Barbwire crawls
- And, other “surprise” obstacles
And, of course, what would any adventure be without the green slime “slip and slime” at the end!?
I seriously considered entering myself in the race.
The brave Jamie in my heart was thrilled!
The Jamie that squirms at the thought of crawling through mud was less enthusiastic.
It made me stop and think: why am I afraid of this?
What is there to fear?
And, then, I read this quote:
“Curiosity will conquer fear even more than bravery will.”
So, I’ll give it some thought and let my curiosity wonder …and, maybe that’s all I need to do!
In the meantime, I will cheer on Libby as she trains to be a superhero. Go, Libby, go!
Is there a superhero in you?
