Joining the Team

While I may be a late arrival I'm really happy to be a part of the team.  It's funny from the mid 90's until about two years ago I was a very active person. I couldn't imagine not exercising. It was a huge part of who I was and it always brought a smile to my face. But some where along the line the excitement started to drop.  Instead of working out because I wanted to I was working out because I had to. I was getting tired and miserable and my body just didn't want to do it any more.  So I slowly dropped things from my workout schedule. First I started skipping bike rides, then runs, and finally I quit swimming altogether. The toll on my body, as you can imagine wasn't pretty but my brain was desperate for the break.  But here I am two years later in the worst shape I've been in a very long time and it's time I change this. So with that in mind I am officially joining this team.  I am very thankful for having a team to keep me motivated and hopefully I can do the same for you.

Off to get outside and enjoy the sunshine!
