My pigeon-toed gate prompted the pediatrician to suggest leg braces.  My parents opted against this recommendation to protect me from social ridicule. If I had known then what I know now, I would have opted for the leg braces. My ability to participate in physical activity was limited, always tripping over myself when forced to run. I was able to excel as a swimmer since I didn't have to drive through my feet. 

Fast-forward, I became a stressed out division president at a global entertainment company.  Living to work, I was one unhealthy single mom.  My diet consisted of lard and distilled spirits with physical activity limited to subway stairs, party attendance or airport running. I faced unanticipated adversity in the premature loss of both of my parents to Cancer. It was a very dark place. 

Becoming empty nested allowed me time to reevaluate priorities. I became a cardio-kickboxing addict surrounding myself with a new fitness family.  Fascinated by kinesiology while recovering from long term injuries, I threw myself into fitness education earning my certification from American Council on Exercise. My 30 years of corporate experience along with my newfound passion provided the perfect formula to start a non-profit organization called Fit 4 The Cause. I truly love preaching about the fitness lifestyle and how it can increase confidence and improve overall health and well-being. And now that I'm engaged in consistent training, I'm excited to complete my third Mud Run at Camp Pendleton.  (Even though my team moves slow).  After my childhood obstacles, I never thought I'd be able to complete a 10K run.  Third times a charm! Supporting the U.S. Military always makes me think of my dad who served with the U.S. Airforce. 

Please support Fit 4 The Cause participants at this year's World Famous Mud Run at Camp Pendleton on June 14th, at 8:30AM. You can stay clean by sponsoring my F4TC team right here!

All your dollars will go directly to Fit 4 The Cause, which continues to fund health needs through diverse group exercise programs.  All gifts to F4TC are tax-deductible to the extent provided by law.
