How unoriginal is the fact that my New Year’s resolution is to start working out? I know. Blatantly unoriginal. But, boy, I REALLY do need to get myself in gear. First of all, my back has been killing me lately. The major culprits are the daily sessions of diaper wrestling, toddler chasing, and a fun little game we play called “Let’s Struggle to Get this Curios Kid Back in her Stroller.” You know that game. The other reason is that I know the only way teach a son/daughter to do something is to do it yourself. I want to K to lead an active life. Watching my mom sweat to Jane Fonda in her 80’s leotards definitely programmed me to value and enjoy exercise.
The other day I came across FLIPANY ( Florida Introduces Physical Activity and Nutrition to Youth). They provide affordable physical activity and nutrition programs for youth and their families in South Florida. This Saturday, they will be hosting the 4th Annual Memorial Heathcare Systems 5/10K Fun Run in Hollywood (You can also just walk it). The event includes an NFL PLAY 60 Zone open from 10am - Noon. Post Fun Run you can enjoy a delicious pancake breakfast sponsored by Whole Foods Market and prepared by Chef Ron Duprat of the Marriot Hollywood Beach Resort.
Get the year started on the right foot and put on your running shoes.
