“I have participated in physical fitness all of my adult life, and through the years it has grown from a hobby to a passion. I enjoy stretching my knowledge base and experience by participating in various modes of exercise. I also love working with people and rallying those around me to join in. One source of fitness that I particularly enjoy is running. I have participated in numerous races ranging from 5Ks to a full marathon. I have also coordinated my own running groups as well as assisted in others. There is something about pushing myself both mentally and physically that brings a great amount of satisfaction to me. Nothing clears my mind more than throwing on a pair of running shoes and hitting the pavement.
Along with enjoying fitness, I also lead a very active lifestyle. Living in New Hampshire provides opportunities to enjoy a variety of outdoor activities during any season, whether it be biking, hiking, or skiing (just to name a few). I also enjoy indoor rock wall climbing from time to time. Fitness is a high priority in our family, and I feel it is important to be a good fitness example to my children and to expose them to a variety of activities to encourage a healthy and active lifestyle.
One thing I have come to realize is that there is not just one single component to staying fit and being healthy. It is a combination of a healthy lifestyle, eating well and being active. While exercising and eating healthy are both good, doing one independent of the other is counterproductive. To truly live well, both must be incorporated, and it takes commitment, consistency and hard work. The good news is that when you commit to making exercise and healthy eating habits part of your everyday life, it doesn’t seem so “hard”, and the benefits you reap are incredibly sweet. I am not only talking about the way you look, but most importantly about the way you feel!
Living well is a choice. It is an action. You only live once… Make it count!”
