On Monday, I successfully completed my first challenge in Year of the Physical Fitness Challenge.
I know it sounds ridiculous, but I was actually terrified to go dogsledding. As the guides connected the snarling male huskies to the sleds, I could feel the tears brimming in my eyes. I've always been scared of dogs, so knowing that I was going to be driving a team of five animals that could easily rip me apart set me on edge.
But it was more than that--it was the fear that I was going to do something wrong or lose control. It was the fear that's underpinning all the things that I hope to do this year.
But, predictably, I loved it.
I want to go again.
