After running for office, I noticed that I am far from being in the physical shape that it took to become a 2X IRONMAN. The fact is we can all get very busy and can find excuses not to get out and exercise.
This year I am starting a new tradition, and I ask you to join me wherever you are. We are calling it the Thanksgiving Community #SillyClothesRun in effort to promote community interaction. Why silly clothes? It is because a lot of your friends and family will be visiting others in your neighborhoods and/or communities. If you see them while out getting exercise, say "Hi" and introduce yourself. Here is how you can participate:
- Dress up in silly clothes to workout
- Go outside in your neighborhood and community to run or walk for 10-30 minutes before eat Thanksgiving dinner. (This will kickstart your metabolism.)
- Wave an introduce yourself to all of your neighbors that see you while working out.
- Take a pic or a selfie on social media with #SillyClothesRun
If we get enough attention, we will help start organized runs all over the US in 2017. I can't wait to see your pics and Happy Thanksgiving.
