For Diane, the event was more than just exercise, it was doing something for herself.
"I wanted to do something totally crazy and out of my comfort zone," Diane said. "I really wanted to do something just for myself... I put my family's needs first, my work needs first, but I never took the time to do something that would make ME happy."
