Quite an adventure

Since we’ve opened our business, I haven’t had as much time to pursue one activity that I’ve done in the past, and that’s Adventure Racing. I’ve had the good fortune to have been involved in races as short as a few hours to as long as eight days.

One that brings back the most incredible memories for me was the Four Winds USA Adventure. The race was held in August 2002 in the Wasatch Range, just outside Salt Lake City.

If you’re interested, read on.

(Be ready, it’s a long race and a long story, but it’s fun!)

New classes: Ready, set, go and Strength on the Rocks

I’ll be leading a couple of new classes for the summer 2009 session at the Bolingbrook Park District.

Ready, set, go is designed for those who are interested in completing a 5k. Whether you’ve never run or it’s been awhile since you’ve tried, if you’re ready to give it a shot this is the class for you. Run it walk it, either way, you’re welcome to join is for this program. In addition to group run/walk sessions, we’ll also be making sure you’ve got the right shoes, the right clothes, proper running mechanics, reviewing strength training techniques to get the most from your workout, nutrition, and more.

Strength on the Rocks will be using the Annerino climbing wall to develop strength, stability, balance, power, mental focus, and have fun at the same time. If you’ve never used the climbing wall, or never thought of the wall as a training tool, you’re in for a treat!

Registration opens for both sessions in a couple weeks. In the meantime, let me know if you have any questions.

We’re also currently preparing the calendar for the fall classes. In addition to the normal aerobics classes already offered by the Park District, what else would you like to see? This is your chance to think outside the box and let me know what fresh new programs you’d like to attend.

Leave a comment below on what you’d like to see!

President Obama Does It…Do You?

Yesterday, President Obama met with Latin American leaders, members of Congress, read briefs and received updates on world affairs, and did other things tha the leader of the free word does. Oh, and he got in a workout too.

In fact, he finds time to get his workout, as does the First Lady, nearly every day. It’s part of their lifestyle.

Did you get your workout? Or, were you busier than the President?
