Go Mom! We love to shout out our favorite clients on the blog (Pati,Craig, Adam) and my Mom deserves some love too.
Since turing the ripe old age of 50 my Mom has been very active in masters track & field. I think it's fantastic! It keeps her focused, in great shape, and out of trouble!
Mom recently competed in the 2011 USA Masters Outdoor Track & Field Championships in Ohio. As I said before she took home 5 National Titles! Mom's a beast.
Here's a little run down of her accolades:
|Mom is on the far right.|
Mom is one tough cookie, but it just goes to show that no matter what age you are, you can find some form of fitness and fall in love with it.
Some older adults run, my mom sprints, others do Zumba, water aerobics, run marathons, or bike. The important thing is that they do something! There are so many studies linking the positive effects of exercise on aging, dementia, and overall health.
So how about a big hand clap to Mom and let's all try to squeeze a little extra sweat into our weeks. Cause why? Cause Momma says so! :)
|Mom also eats cookies while at Disney.|
Love and good genes,
