Putting our best foot forward.
Today was an amazing day for a group of ladies who have come together to improve their health and in turn have inspired others! Along with 10 other women I was fortunate to run in the Vancouver Sun Run with over 49 000 other people. We trained together over the last 6 months to improve our health, relieve stress & support the goals of many who had never completed a 10 K race. As we made our way to the start line we had people asking to take their picture with our group, CBC interviewed us and other teams were impressed with our unity. A few months back I suggested we dress up in 80's attire for the race, and as my team is adventurous they were up for it. So needless to say Team Fit By Design made a BIG impression! In the moment that CBC was interviewing us the lady asked how we prepared for the race & Amy from our team rattled off all the activities we do as a group & in that moment I felt like a leader and it took me back for a moment. Wow...I was so proud of this group of women, many who were completing their first 10 K, others over coming phobia's, another battling back from serious injuries, one who only one year earlier could barley walk down the stairs without pain, another completing the race after losing 95 lbs, so many amazing individuals. But now supporting each other & believing in OUR abilities we were going to take on 10 K. So as I re live this day I will see all of the people smile & cheer us on & feel inspired but what I was able to create to help get these ladies started and know they will never stop!
