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.
Swamp Romp 2011
Warriors Dash 2012

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.
