Better Than The Alternative Tuesdays: People Who Kick Ass

This is an epic week for me and what better way to celebrate than with Better Than the Alternative Tuesdays? Mrs. Obi-wan has this cool necklace that really embodies all of her attributes and inspired today’s blog theme. Allow me to dedicate this blog to those people in my (and your) life who kick some serious ass. Because, I don’t know about you, but being around those people makes my life brighter.

Those of you who have been reading my blog for a while now know that I have a serious amount of kick-ass people in my world. I can’t help it, I’m drawn to them. Sometimes I’m related to them (even better, they can’t get away from me!). And sometimes I meet them for five minutes and the memory of their awesomeness is forever imbedded in my mind. I don’t know how I get so lucky, but it seems everyone around me just plain ‘ol kicks ass. I love it!

I like to celebrate those people as much as possible. Usually, it’s with cupcakes. I love a cupcake, especially SugarSweet Sunshine and Moxie Cupcake! I can’t help myself. But sometimes, a shout-out is better than a cupcake so today is all about sending a shout-out to those people in your life who kick ass (sometimes yours) and deserve to know they do.

*Blondie, you kick ass and are just incredible.

*Rainbow Bright, you kick ass for jumping to help a friend in need. Not everyone does that.

*Here’s to an awesome team of 3 from luluemon who are volunteering to guide Achilles athletes at this year’s ING NYC Marathon AND will be raising money for the charity Let All the Children Play in the process. You guys kick ass and I couldn’t be prouder or more inspired!

*Secret Agent Man and Bonkers, you kick ass for follow your dreams, which is always the most inspiring reason to leave any place.

*All the athletes out there who never give up, you kick ass. I see you. Keep going.

*My friends who are embarking on the final stretch to attaining their various medical licenses, you kick some major ass! You are all smarter than me and I am counting on you to fix me and my old bones in the future. I am in awe of your smartypants-ness.

*Anyone who is running for the first time today, tomorrow or last month: you kick ass! Starting is the hardest part and you totally kick ass for lacing up your sneaks and taking those first steps. Welcome.

With all of you kick-ass people in my life in mind, I’m going to head out into this beautiful day and go for a run. Join me, won’t you? Go out and run!

Wait! First tell me, who kicks ass in YOUR life?

    • Thanks, Obi-wan. I ran before the quake. Safe and sound at home. Was calling you guys when it happened. Too weird. I definitely didn’t know what to think. (To those of you who don’t know, we felt the earthquake all the way up here in NYC! Scary!)
