The Truth

I recently participated in a post question on a friends blog asking for 3 Truths and a Lie. I love this game...it allows me to reminise about some of the fun and interesting things that I have done in my life. Everytime I've played this, whether at a work function or at a party - everyone always guess which one of mine is the lie.

I put down that the following:

1. I won a New York State Powerlifting Championship - TRUTH
I was on the powerlifting team at West Point and won the 1984 New York State Powerlifting Championship for my wieght class.

2. I participated in a Reebok National Aerobics Championship - TRUTH
I was on the Army demonstartion team and we participated in the Reebock National Aerobics Championship in Chicago.

I KNOW I don't hear laughing, do I. I will shank somebody.

3. I've run a marathon - TRUTH
I ran (and have the certificate from the United States Marine Corps to prove it) Marine Corps Marathon. The certificate reads: "This is to certify that Lisa L. Bembry, Runner Number 10746 successfully completed the Marine Corps Marathon at the olymic distance of 26 miles 385 yards, Washington, DC 2 November 1986 finishing 7547 of 7913 in a time of 5:19:07." Shut up. I finished the dang thing and I didn't come in last. I didn't put back on running shoes for 3 months after that and never ran anything longer than 13 miles since.

4. I compete in Ballroom Dance Competitions - FALSE
I do not compete in Ballroom Dance Competitions although I would like to. My dance partner isn't having any part of it. He is willing to take lessons and cut a rug with me every now and then when we go out. I have been informed that I need to find me another dance partner. I haven't been motivated to do that. A good partner is hard to find.

It was enough that our dance instructor got Ron to dance with me in a showcase at the dance studio. We were the only people that did not dance with their instructors. Check out the video. Ron is actually rather good.

I'd love to hear some of your Truths & a Lie and see if I can guess correctly.
