Only 12 Weeks Away!

OMG!  I can’t believe we’re less than 12 weeks away from the biggest, most exciting event of the year!!  (No, it is not the return of Lord  & Taylor’s Shoe Event, although like every respectable fashionista, I do love a nice pair of pumps 🙂 ) Our 5K Walk and USATF Certified Race is rapidly approaching and I am well on my way to being on tip-top shape!  I’ve been training hard, eating right and spreading the word to all my friends and family.  I’ve been doing such a great job that we have close to 120 teams already registered for the 5K!!  I actually had the pleasure of meeting some of our amazing team captains at our Team Captains Kickoff event, which was held at Forest Lodge on March 16th.  Over 100 people joined me to hear some of the top team captains from prior years share their fundraising and team building tips.  We rallied, we shared stories and most importantly, we honored those who gave, paid tribute to those who received, offered hope to those who continue to wait and remembered the lives lost while waiting for the gift of life.  It was an unforgettable day and it was just a preview of what’s to come on June 9th!

Heart-healthy tip of the day: Spring is here and with it comes…spring cleaning! As much as you may hate cleaning, think of housework as an extra chance to exercise. Vacuuming briskly can be a real workout!

Calling all 2013 5K Team Captains!!

Save the Date – on Saturday, March 16th, NJ Sharing Network is hosting their 2nd Annual 5K Team Captains Kickoff! This is an event that you cannot miss, especially if you are a new team captain this year. All team captains will receive important information about the 5K Walk/Race, a packet containing resources for your team-building and fundraising and most importantly, you will be able to meet the wonderful NJ Sharing Network staff and share tips and ideas with other team captains! Oh, and as an added bonus…you’ll get to meet me! 🙂

This is an invitation-only event, so if you want to come and join the fun, make sure you create and register your team at by March 16th! Hope to see you all there!

Heart-healthy tip of the day: If you work behind a desk most of the day, get up and walk around for at least 5 minutes every hour. Sitting for an extended period of time can ultimately bring about health concerns such as diabetes, obesity and heart disease. I love to visit my friends and co-workers in different departments. Gives me a chance to catch up and I get to take a break from the computer!
