My FIRST 5K…

Posted by Leave a Comment

 It’s never too late to do your first 5K (hey I thought it was  closer to 5 miles than it is, lol)

A bit behind at the start…

Notice, I did say my FIRST…hmmmm, that is because it was fun and I can see myself doing this again. 

Yes Dee, it does feel great to exercise. 

Yes Janet, it sort of was like going to the spa, especially because I got a free 10 minute massage afterwards from a guy with very strong hands (even when I was saying ouch).  And I was a bit late for my first 5K, I mean, the whole crowd had left the starting point and you will see there was one other gal and me rushing to catch up.  And catch up I did because I arrived back somewhere in the middle of the pack and by no means at the end.  I do have this one little itsy bitsy competitve bone in my body.  Ya, I ran part of the way and walked part of the way and I wanted to sprint at the finish but it was almost like my legs were rubber and were not attached to my body at that point and I thought I might fall!

Yep, it was fun.  Because there were lot of people and I love being with lots of people!

Ya, Emily Moore, I should try Zumba…wanna go with me?  That would be fun…oh, I forgot…there is this little pond to cross to do that…

Anyhow, in honor of all you across the pond who have been so lovely, who have encouraged me so much to exercise, and who have all shared such wonderful recipes and ideas and encouragement with me on the journey…as a tribute, I wore my British flag socks! Love ya!  Hey, maybe some day we will all exercise together!

Ha, and someday maybe I will figure out how to turn this right side up!

I am a husband, father of 2 girls (I was told that I was meant to be King)! I have been in the fitness industry since graduating from the University of Florida back in 97. I had the privilege to do an internship with the world renowned Dr. Cooper and the Cooper Aerobics Center. My initial start after graduating was as a personal trainer at a small private personal training studio in Orlando. After eight months, I moved to Dallas and worked as a personal trainer and manager for the Premier Athletic Club in Dallas. Since that time I have continued to work as a fitness professional in a variety of roles. Most recent is the development of America's # 1Lifestyle program for Working Moms called "Working Mom Workouts." I enjoy working with my clients and helping people reach their fitness goals.
