Geri was looking to find her mojo. She did it, and more!:

“I ran my FIRST 5k this year while working with June 

Geri (Center) at Stow Gobbler 5k with her 2 kids.

This is no small feat as I am 56 years old and haven’t been running in a VERY long time. In fact, I don’t like running.

But, I have been feeling better then ever since beginning June’s Program.

I have been attending FitCamp and working to improve my fitness.

June encouraged me to write fitness goals for 1 week, 1 month, 6 months, and one year beyond the start of the program.

June recommend tips to increase my fitness in small ways. Reducing my walking circuit time, or throwing in a few exercises first thing in the morning, and also keeping track of exercise and activity each day.

I also asked my adult kids to run with me, which added incentive and motivation to finish.

I am proud to say that running a 5k was a 1 year goal and I completed it within 1 month of starting the program!!!

June and the other Fit Campers were there cheering at the finish.

I don’t know that I’ll ever run a marathon, but it feels good to break out of that mental prison of “I can’t” or “it’s painful” and return to an identity of strength and athleticism.

I stand taller, sit straighter, have more energy, and feel good about myself.

And that’s worth working for. Thanks June!” ~ Geri, Stow
