Why would anyone want to run 100 miles at once?
I am often asked this question, especially now that I am
less than 100 days away from the date of The Burning
River 100 mile event.
I began this journey over 25 years ago when I became a fitness
instructor. From then on, I have tried to push myself to improve my
performance and overall health. I believe in an overall approach to
fitness that includes aerobic activity (running, biking, swimming
and cardio classes), including core and overall strength training
(Pilates, yoga and resistance training). Backed by research too
numerous to site, the combination of aerobic and strength training,
along with proper diet and rest provide the building blocks for
achievement of fitness goals.
Fitness is more than being able to run your first 5k, biking
adventure, walk-a-thon, tri-event, or even a 100 mile run. Fitness
is a state of well being. Fitness is the forming of friendships.
Fitness is a time management skill. Fitness is a stress reliever.
Fitness is a time for planning and reflecting. Fitness is a breath
of fresh air. Fitness is a love/hate relationship. Fitness is an
event. Fitness is a lifestyle. Fitness is YOU.
Not everyone can run 100 miles at once; however, I find that by
setting goals, no matter how big or small they are, they keep me
focused on the event ahead and just maybe with the training behind
me and some miles to run yet ahead in the next 100 days, I will
cross the finish line of The Burning River 100 mile event.
Follow me on my journey. Why not set a fitness goal today? Perhaps
you have already accomplished a fitness achievement that you would
like to share. Please feel free to contact me with any fitness
questions or ideas you may have. I would love to hear from you.
Remember, fitness is YOU.
In good health,
