SPT- Altius (higher)

I've done faster and stronger from the Olympic Motto, but finding something for Altius (higher) was a hard one, until the other day while I was running. All the sudden "The Eye of the Tiger" came on my MP3 player and it took me way back. I did my first floor exercise program (gymnastics) to this song when I was in like 3rd or 4th grade. It was for a talent show, not an actual competition, because you can't use music with words for competition. It made me smile and then I thought, "Wow, my age is definitely getting higher!"
And while we are on the subject of higher, Do you remember when hair was much higher? Those were the days!

Yeouch! I forgot how high we used to get our hair back then. I have a similar photo. I'll have to pull it out and show my kids. They'll laugh.

I think at one point my bangs stuck up at least 2 inches off the top of my head. I have always loved that song.

What a funny, funny post. I don't think I'll ever tire of Eye of the Tiger.

I remember how long in the bathroom it took you to create those "perfect" bangs and get that hair big enough and how upset you would get about your hair that "just won't do anything". Mom
