It Begins Tomorrow

*Below is the shameless plug sent to staff in my building as the second annual Fun Run/Walk Series gets ready to commence.

You could be one of the few,
The proud,
A Fun Run/Walk participant!!

“Fitness has to be fun. If it is not play, there will be no fitness. Play, you see, is the process. Fitness is merely the product”

Dr. George Sheehan

Last year, 12 participants took that message to heart and rambled over 400 miles in a weekly, non competitive run or walk all in the name of fun, but in the end discovered camaraderie and improved fitness. The course which measures 3.25 miles is a relatively flat pedestrian path meandering along the Clinton River. You don’t have to cover the entire distance, but getting out even for 15 minutes can clear your head after a long day and give you a chance to get in some play (oops, I mean fitness).

Other benefits include:
1. A really cool nickname
2. Monthly prizes
3. Newsletter
4. Exclusive events such as:

Snowman Shuffle

When: Thursdays @ 2:30 pm

“I’m just asking you to maybe take a run/walk, take a chance”
