It’s time for Friday Five linkup with DC area bloggers Courtney at Eat Pray Run DC, Cynthia at You Signed Up for What?!, and Mar at Mar on the Run!  Be sure to stop by their blogs and say hello!



This week’s theme is Fitness Inspirations…

1.  I am inspired by my clients that make a decision to put their health first, set goals, and then work hard to reach those goals.

2.  I am inspired by my many different running friends.  Some work hard to run a mile without taking a walk break, others train to run a faster 5K or train to run their first half marathon, and yet others bust their butts to qualify for Boston.

3.  I am inspired by leaders in the fitness industry that share their passion and expertise with other fitness professionals through books, videos, seminars, and conferences.

4.  I am inspired by elderly people who continue to exercise, even if their 7-minute mile from their youth is now a 20-minute mile while walking.

5.  I am inspired by people who reinvent themselves by hard work and perseverance.
