The Hardest Earned T-shirt Ever

Heat Wave T Shirt (c) Kristen Dembroski

This summer, I participated in a challenge at my gym: attend 15 group fitness classes, collect signatures, and earn a spiffy new t-shirt. The competitive side in me just couldn’t walk away! Who knew this would be the hardest I would EVER work for a t-shirt in my WHOLE life? 15 classes is a BIG time investment. I know, I know, it wasn’t about the t-shirt. But dagnabbit, every time I look at / wear / wash / fold / think about that shirt, I am going to remember all that hard work and commitment.

I tried so many different things this summer as part of the group fitness classes. I did a lot of yoga, but also a cardio club, zumba, kick-boxing, circuit training, and spin. I pushed myself out of my comfort zone, which is a very rewarding thing to do. So there you have it – a $7ish dollar cotton t-shirt that represents perseverance, power, and pride! I will be honored to wear it until it falls apart!
