They say if at first you don’t succeed try, try again. And the Fit Bottomed Girls are all about that. In our minds, life isn’t about attaining the perfect body or finishing the race, it’s enjoying every step of the way there. Now that it’s almost summer Olympics time, I think it’s time we all remembered that. Four years is a long time to prepare for an event, especially one that only lasts a few seconds. I mean, seriously, what if you’re having a bad day? You’re just screwed and then all that hard work was for…nothing? Not in my book. That hard work was life.
So, in the spirit of the Olympics and all of those professional athletes—or just your common fit bottomed girls or boys who are out running their first 5K or triathlon—who didn’t quite do their absolute best on game day, we salute you and remind you to celebrate all of your successes, not just the big days, and to always find the fun and humor even when you don’t get the gold. In reality, there’s more to life than gold. There’s also platinum…and diamonds. Just saying.
The FBGs also salute those who, year after year, never give up on improving themselves. Take this 41-year-old for example. Who cares if she wins next month; she rocks! —Jenn
