Dear Lithe

Hi Lauren,
Thanks for the great Freestyle yesterday. Loved the upper back work, definitely feeling strong today!

I met an unexpected, but meaningful milestone at class yesterday: my hair fell in my eyes. As I may have mentioned to you, I started Lithe exactly one week after I finished chemo and right as I lost my hair. A month into starting Lithe, I shaved what little hair I had left into a mohawk (check out this blog post my friend did about it here.) With the help of Lithe, I was feeling better quickly, and hated the idea of "looking sick" when I wasn't feeling sick any longer. So shaving my hair into a mohawk (instead of straight bald) was my little way of looking as strong as my body was getting.

It has been ten months since my hair has flopped into my eyes while exercising.  It was surprising how meaningful that moment was yesterday. I'm glad it happened in class, because Lithe has been a huge part of my recovery.

Thanks for helping me feel as strong physically, as I know I am mentally.
