At Niki G Fitness fun and fitness go together! That’s why when our team starting planning to do the Blvd. Bolt on Thanksgiving Day, we decided to pay homage to the decade where exercise really became popular- the 80’s! We were in luck because apparently some 80’s clothing is back in style and on a cold morning, the leg warmers actually came in handy over our running tights!
From the tween-age clothing stores to the Blvd itself we got lots of smiles, pictures, shout outs and of course stares. The girls at the tween stores commented that there were “quite a few of us in our age group looking for 80’s attire” Thanks.
So while we may not look like we did around 10 years old, at least we got the chance to wear some fun clothes and enjoying the energy and youthfulness a good run always brings us.
Congratulations to Team Niki G Fitness! On Oct. 10th, after a 60 minute Boot Camp class, several of our Boot Campers loaded into one of my in-home client’s SUV and made our way from Granny White Park to Maryland Farms to meet up with the rest of our team and run what for many of them would be their first 5k; The Race for the Cure! The excitement they all shared at the finish line was incredible. After completing her first 5k in a little over 35 minutes, one Boot Camper came up to me and gave me a big hug saying “I ran the whole way, and it’s all because of you!” Actually, it’s because she started Boot Camp a couple of months ago, didn’t give up and stayed committed to her program. This is also the same Boot Camper who told me while running our warm up mile on her first day, “I don’t think I can do this.” Obviously, I showed her she could. Now here she is running her first 5k!
The entire team did wonderful! We all finished in about 35 minutes and which gave us plenty of time and chat and plan our next race… the Blvd Bolt on Thanskgiving Day. All I can say is stay tuned for the pictures next month because you are NOT going to want to miss them!!!
And remember, you can do ANYTHING, one step at a time!
