I've taken up boxing. This time it's not the cardio kickboxing stuff. Let's just say I love it. Yes I know for the folks from GSB, it was kind of funny to see me show up to work with boxing gloves. I think someone even joked that I brought them to meetings to spar with the other managers.
I think it is a great way to get into shape and release tension in the body. I'm just having a wonderful time this turn around...so I definitely was bummed out that I didn't bring my own gear from back home but I can get some good stuff here...even hand made gloves. Boy those sound serious. But what's really funny was when I was trying to look up the email about my gear from back home I found this quote in my inbox:
"They are subversive. You think they're just sitting there at the desk, all quiet and everything. They're like plotting the revolution, man. I wouldn't mess with them." -- Michael Moore talking about librarians (Buzzflash, March 2002).
I started to laugh. Here I am a trained librarian(thinking of going back to librarianship) and I'm enjoying the heck out of beating up my trainer. Gosh I wonder what it will be like when I enter the ring. I'll have to get Jeff to take photos or video.
