Alison’s Blog- One of the best reasons ever to be healthy

Alison wyckoff tri

Peter- I’m so glad Alison shared this blog with us. In my opinion, if you can motivate a child to be healthy by your actions, then that’s what it’s all about.

Alison- Saturday I was out on a 6 mile run. This was a hill run, where I do a 2 mile loop that contains 5 hills per loop. Let me do the math for you: that’s 15 hills and 6 miles of distance all in one run. Normally, I dread my hill run, and have to admit freely that I excel at reasons to do a flatter, more “normal” run on hill run day.

This Saturday, though, I was happy to do my run, almost excited. And no, I didn’t fall at any point and slam my head against the concrete I run on. I raced through my 6 miles and 15 hills as fast as I could. I wasn’t thrilled about the run itself. I couldn’t wait for what came after the run.

Peter K is organizing a 5K run through his club, the “Fit Friends’ Revolution”, that’s taking place on July 17th. And though I love to race, that also isn’t the reason for my exuberance. What I’m so thrilled about is that my 6 year old daughter, Olivia, is going to run the 5K with me, and we’re going for a training run after my hills from hell. more »

It’s not about the weight! It’s about …………

Fit Friends’ Revolution coming Oct 2010

My Team!

When I was 60lbs overweight I used to think I wanted to lose weight and that would make me happy.  It took me years to realize that losing weight wouldn’t make me happy.

Here’s the question of the day, “If this was going to be your last day, what would you say is the most important thing to you?”

For me it’s my team above.  Anna, Emma and Alexander. I eat energizing foods, train my body for strength and stamina and focus my thoughts on success and how I can be my best for them.  What motivates me is not how many calories I burn exercising or how to starve myself to be thin, but how can I give my children the things I didn’t have as a child.  I can’t think of a better motivator for me.  I will never let them down, it’s just not an option.

What is it for you if it’s not about the weight?  What are you exercising and eating healthy for? Answer that question and you will master your health!
