Want to run the Chicago Marathon with me?

Have you ever wanted to run a marathon?  Here’s your chance.  I am looking for some motivated people to come run the Chicago Marathon with me in October.  Are you interested?


Last year I ran the Chicago Marathon with Team Healthy Kids and I’ll be doing it again this year with Willie.  I really want to put together a team to run for a great cause.  Childhood obesity is a great risk to our country and I want to do something about it.  This is my way of making difference.  Do you want to make a difference with me?

Willie and I are excited to announce we are leading a team as part of Team Healthy Kids to run the 2016 Chicago Marathon together and raise funds for Action for Healthy Kids. We’re recruiting up to 10 people who have also lost weight and are crazy enough to want to run a marathon, like us! If that describes you, fill out the form below. In addition to the amazing feeling you’ll get from running for a great cause, here’s what else you’ll receive:

1. A free guaranteed spot in the race

2. Perks from AFHK – gear, fundraising tips and coaching from Seth Kopf Running (learn more about the benefits of running the Chicago Marathon with Team Healthy Kids here)

3. A support network through our mini-team – Willie and I will provide training support and tips via email as well as a monthly web chat for the whole team

4. Promotion of our team via WeBeatFat.com and AFHK to help support your fundraising efforts

Team members must commit to the fundraising minimum of $1,000 and be willing to share their story with AFHK for potential publicity purposes and to conduct media interviews.

If you are ready to take your personal journey to the next level, then lace up with us and lets go! AFHK’s first deadline to fill spots in the Chicago Marathon is April 12, so please spread the word!

It’s #GivingTuesday: The children of St. Jude need our HELP!

Brown Thursday, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday, those are all over.  It’s time for #GivingTuesday. So what is Giving Tuesday all about? Getting together to celebrate generosity by giving! We give all our money to the stores so why not give to help out a great cause. Last year we raised $2500 for the children of St. Jude. This year our fundraising goal wasn’t quite as high but we would still like to give back. Can you help us raise a little bit more money? Last year this was supposed to be my first marathon but it was canceled. It…

Happy Friday and thank you! How are you …

Happy Friday and thank you!  How are you getting active this weekend?

Good mid-morning my readers.  I hope everyone is having a great day because it’s FRIDAY.  The weekend has arrived!  I was supposed to be in San Jose for Blogher but I had a little incident last weekend.  I thought it would be better on my pocket book if I stayed home this weekend.  It’s a bummer but I’ll be there next year. This morning I totally decided to sleep in because I felt tired so I missed my 5am workout, but I just finished a HIIT Tone It Up workout.  I’m going to take it easy on my workout today…
