My Truth Monday-Fitness

Aloha friends and happy Monday.  Today I am happy to join in on a new linky with Denise over at Sunny Days In Second Grade.

This weeks truth is all about Fitness.  This is a topic that I am passionate about, because it is something that I firmly believe in.  I love being athletic, strong and in shape.  I love that people don't believe I am 45 years young.   

I have been running and competing in physical challenges for many years.  I ran my first half-marathon when I was 16.

In 2000 I did the AIDS Ride.  I rode my bicycle from San Francisco to L.A. with several other teachers.  If you don't know how far that is, it's 545 miles.

I loved it so much I become a ride leader and helped others train for it.  In 2002 I had my first daughter. I ran The US Half Marathon when she was 6 months old.

Since moving to Hawaii I have taught myself to surf and have participated in tons of fun 5 and 10K runs.

Let's just say this girl loves a challenge, especially a physical one!  I plan to be active and fit for as long as my body will allow it.

What's your Fitness Truth?  Head on over and link up with Sunny Days In Second Grade.

  3. Aloha Corinna,
    You are just like my daughter who is an Elite Athlete- made the National Triathlon Team for the last 3 years. I totally agree about fitness being your happy drug. Even at almost 65 I'm as fit as a fiddle.
