Congrats to LiveUp DC mentor Steph, who ran a half marathon this past weekend! At LiveUp programs, we’re all about taking care of yourselves: eat healthy, practice good hygiene (we had a Dental Hygiene Extravaganza!), and exercising. Steph wanted to share her experiences, so take it away…
This weekend, I ran my first half marathon. I wore my LiveUp t-shirt to spread the word. Little did I know how big a role LiveUp would ultimately play in my completion of the race!
At LiveUp, we focus on wellness by talking about eating right, taking care of yourself, and exercising. LiveUp’s principles of fitness, fun, and teamwork propelled me through the final miles of the race. Just as we learned in our Morning Fitness Yoga and exercise routines at this year’s Labor Day program, fitness can be fun! It’s about simultaneously reaching for one’s own potential, supporting and encouraging those around us to push their limits, and releasing those happy endorphins. I had so much fun dancing, lunging, stretching, and yoga-ing during Morning Fitness at LiveUp. Fun – the way fitness should be. It’s no wonder I saw so many smiles, both during the half marathon and at our Morning Fitness sessions.
