My Wednesday Motivator - Stay Active

Team - 
My motivation this week are my "healthy" friendships. A good friendship is stronger then any muscle in my body. They can break or tear, but when they repair, they become stronger than ever.

Here are a couple examples of fitness helping enrich my friendships:

Dana and I completed a 10k and had the best time! Couldn't run and talk about life during the race, but finishing the race with her and seeing that big smile was worth it.  We share a passion for exercising and this activity was the perfect thing for us. We can say when we get older, "remember that race." My heart lights up to know I can only share this memory with her.

Below is a picture from the Cinciditarod.  It’s named after the Alaskan Iditarod – 1,100-mile dog-sledding race – but instead of dogs, we used people, and instead of sleds, we had shopping carts. We started downtown at Fountain Square and continued a 10k scavenger hunt for a local food bank around Cincinnati. Team "Ghostbusters" finished 11th and it was awesome!

Visit and see what you and your friends can accomplish.  Active is an online community for people who want to participate in activities in and around your community. This doesn't mean just a race!  They host the world's largest directory of sports and recreational activities, facilities, venues and classes, which includes more than 66,000 races, leagues, tournaments, camps and other recreational listings in over 80 sports and 5,000 cities.

What do you have planned soon with your friends? Did you walk the dog with a neighbor last week? Do it again this week. Something big or small, share it!
