Ringing in the 2012 New Year has a different meaning for everyone – some people like to forget about all of the bad choices they made in 2011, some are looking forward to a fresh start in 2012, many people make a thorough list of resolutions and goals, and many want to continue on the healthy lifestyle train. If you aren’t quite where you thought you would be at the end of 2011, don’t fret! You still have time to jump on board the train! Still figuring out how to make healthy choices (especially fitness) fun? Well what is better than sweating it out with your favorite people?? If you will be in Vancouver on December 31st, then I encourage you to join me on the 1st Annual ‘Glisten, Glow and Gallop’! What is the mighty GGG? Well my friends, we are all going to partake in a little fun 5km adventure around Mundy Park in Coquitlam.
My goal of the event is to connect with my family and friends through one of my favorite activities: SWEATING! We will start the morning off by meeting, as a group, where we can assemble walking groups, racing buddies or running companions. Next we will all power through the 5km by walking, prancing, running, jogging, skipping, or dancing. After sweating it up, we will gather our endorphin-surged bodies for one final hoorah in the parking lot – who doesn’t love a good tail gate partay! I am still working out the details, but I am thinking delicious goodies, hot dranks, smiles, hugs and laughter. (Ok who is bringing the beer?)
Now can you think of a better way to finish off 2011? Why wait until January 1st to start healthy behaviors. Start 2012 off on the right foot, and do something good for your body, mind and soul. I know many of you won’t be able to trek to Coquitlam for the event, but I hope that you still find a way to get sweaty with your family or friends. Every day is a chance to Glisten, Glow and Gallop!
Who says that making healthy choices can’t be fun? Well definitely not this girl! I hope you all join me in making the last day of 2011 a happy and healthy one.
P.S. The tentative plan is to meet at Mundy Park on December 31 at 930am and to start sweating at 10am. Stay tuned for more information, as we are still ironing out the final details.
