I’m a Certified Indoor Cycling Instructor, H.I.I.T and TRX Instructor. The Red Cross CPR/AED certification and Kinesio Taping Technician certifications are also a part of my resume. I am the mother of two and grandmother of one and this website is my personal journey about health and fitness. My passion is exercising, especially running. It’s funny, because as a teenager and young adult I hated running. In my teens I signed up to join the neighborhood track team but I quickly realized that structured running was too hard and I quit because I didn’t want to make that level of commitment and besides it was too hot to run. Luckily I continued to perform gymnastics and dance during my childhood and high school years.
As a young adult I continued to exercise although it was not consistent, I tried step aerobics, Tae Bo, Pilates, and Yoga. But then my life changed, I HAD to exercise because of impending health issues; high cholesterol was present; one of the things I deemed as my genetic death sentence. In 1996 I experienced a mini stroke or the medical condition; TIA (transient ischemia attack) too much stress, a bad diet and too much weight on my 5’2 frame. Whatever I was doing as for as exercise was not working, maybe it was the amount, the intensity or not combining exercise and proper diet.
In 1994 I had my first stint with prolonged exercise as an adult, I chaperoned my daughter’s high school marching unit. I did that on and off for four years. At the start of parade season I would begin walking, but by the end of the season I stopped. In 1998 when I became a chaperon at my son’s middle school I was tired of the start and stop cycle. I also noticed the inconsistency was too hard on my now 35 year old body. So I decided to stay consistent with the walking and the best part was I loved being outdoors. I found that walking or jogging was easy, cheap and didn’t require any equipment just a small investment in running shoes. I found that running was an easy transition from jogging. The more you do something the better you become at it.
My first competitive race was a 5k (3.1) miles in 2002, The St. Augustine Raymond Minor 5k at Audubon Park. I was 38 years old, some would say a little old to start a competitive running program. To my surprise I won my age group division, I ran 3.1 miles in 39 minutes and 42 seconds. Now, fourteen years later, I chuckle when I see that time because now I’m a faster and more efficient runner. That race was not only a win for me in the competitive sense it changed the way I began to live the rest of my life, it was a win for my health and survival. It gets hard sometimes to keep up at the pace I set for myself but it’s worth it. I’m worth it!
