Walk, run, ride, dance, press, bend. It’s time to move into the New Year.
Moving everyday is as natural for me as brushing my teeth every morning. It’s a non-negotiable. My day doesn’t go well if I don’t get up in the morning and include some sort of sweat session.
Now, the duration and the type of movement depends on the day. Most days it includes running or biking because, well, I’m a cardio junkie.
Other days it may be a yoga flow or strength session.
I know that intentional movement everyday (exercise, workout, call it whatever you’d like) is not something that everyone aspires to do nor is it something that comes easily to some people.

When you hear or see the word athlete, what comes to mind? Do you think of the pros? Do you think of high school and college kids?
Simply put, an athlete is a participant in a sport, exercise, or game requiring physical skill.
If you would’ve known me growing up, athlete would not have been a word you used to describe me. In fact, my high school yearbook would not have said anything like “mostly likely to become an athlete”.

Ever experience a setback? Have you felt like you’re moving in the right direction only to experience a bump in the road?
What if that becomes an opportunity?
Back in February 2016, before my nagging knee injury that turned out to be arthritis, I was sidelined from my running routine. A freakish pain happened in my big toe during a Saturday training run that forced me to walk the last mile of the run and led to a couple of weeks on the sidelines, walking and riding my trainer.
