'Tis the season for holiday parties and over indulgence. Before you head out, play the events out in your mind first. If you are shopping, make a list to stay on budget (for whatever you are shopping for) Also - same with your health and wellness. Make sure you are tracking your exercise and activity. It is very easy to get "caught up" in the season. Remember to keep yourself on these lists too. You are very important and must continue taking care of yourself. 2011 has been a year full of change for me (endurance, stamina, career change). I am so thankful that I learned early on to take care of "me" first (putting the air mask on myself) before I can help others.
I ran another 5K on Thanksgiving morning for Special Olympics. This was the 4th year for this annual event. Last year, less than 65 people participated in the event. This year, over 511 people ran the event! I helped promote this event and am looking forward to having even more participants next year! It is very rewarding for me to see other people taking care of themselves and also paying it forward to help others! Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you all!
