My first marathon was not in New York, but was actually in Maui! I did it as part of the Train to End Stroke program, which was a fantastic experience. I was able to help fundraise money to support stroke research and education while completing a life-long goal – not to mention being able to see a beautiful new location. The photo below was along the marathon course – 17 miles of which were oceanfront.
I actually took belly dancing lessons for several years, and performed in a solo performance back in college. It’s a great workout, and I found it to be an exercise that is great at boosting confidence in your body.And I did help run an afterschool running club. It was awesome to see the kids have fun being active and improve over the 10 week program. We were able to get race medals donated from local runners, and gave each child a real race medal at the end of the program – they loved it!
So thank you for being here and getting to know a little more about me. Looking forward to getting to know more about you too – feel free to leave a comment if there is a nutrition question you are dying to ask, an exercise you want to know more about, or anything else that comes to mind!
