going the distance

At my age, a medal of any sorts is welcome! Just back from a 5 K run with my 11 year old daughter who won a gold medal, first in her age and I won a bronze! I hope that each of you feel inspired to take on a "wellness" challenge and feel motivated to get in shape! It is the start of school and we can all learn from each other to keep going the distance to meet our personal best goals!

Congratulations to Mom and Daughter! Physical fitness is the way to wellness. Less than a month ago I had to stop my activities due to a health issue and now on this beautiful day have returned to it--what a difference it makes.

What a memory to run a winning race with your daughter - congratulations! The first race that I ever ran (when I ran, which was almost 20 years ago) was on Labor Day along the boardwalk in Long Beach. It was a day just like today; I remember starting to cry I was so grateful & it was so beautiful. Thank you for reminding me.
Best,
Colleen

Congrats, Patricia!
My daughter and I
challenged ourselves
to a 5K two years ago.
We did it! I've since
switched to cycling,
but have always been
happy that I gave running
a try. Wonderful that
you both did it : ) !!
