FitFluential

A few days ago, I came across a site that I had not seen before. I was drawn to the name, FitFluential. The name was a very interesting play on words and I loved it. I was really excited when I discovered they were looking for FitFluential Ambassadors for major cities in the U.S. & Canada. How exciting is that? So, I decided to audition for the Washington DC FitFluential Ambassador.

A City of History

Washington DC is not where I grew up, but it is where I live now and have chosen to raise my family. We have a variety of things to do here. Everything from educational to fun. DC is located between the mountains and the ocean and being the Nation’s Capital, there is a lot of history here too. It is so exciting to see my kids learn about the Washington Monument in school. The look in their eyes when we go past the Washington Monument is priceless. History comes alive in DC.

My Fit Journey

In the past few years, I have been on a journey to live a healthier life for me and for my family. It all started with a 5k which I completed for the first time because our school needed to raise money for a new playground. I will never forget that feeling when I crossed that finish line. I had completed a 5k.

Finish First 5k

The next year, I had my two older kids train with me and we all completed the 5k. They were as excited when they crossed the finish line as I was the year before and I was so glad to see them start something and bring it to fruition. I couldn’t stop there. Now that I know my body is capable of so much more, I want to do so much more. This year I am training to run my first half marathon over Labor Day weekend.

There is nothing that compares to the feeling you get when you set a goal for yourself, one you never thought you would do. Then you spend time training and planning and preparing to complete that goal. Then all your hard work pays off when you cross that goal off your list because you completed it.

Life is a Journey

In order to be successful, being healthy and fit needs to fit into our lives. We can not stop living to be fit. We need to be fit so that we can continue to live. I want to show you how to find your passion for fitness. Both life and fitness are not a destination, but a journey. We will be on this journey for the rest of our lives, so we better enjoy it!

FitFluential Ambassador Audition Video

Here is my video where I explain when it all clicked for me. When I realized that I could combine my passions with creating a fit and healthy lifestyle for me.

My Fit Life

I don’t claim to have all the answers, but I believe that “everything in moderation,” will help us balance our lives in every aspect. This is a picture slide show I put together to show my family’s journey to a healthier life in Washington DC.

Am I FitFluential?

You bet I am. If chosen, I plan to take this opportunity to share my passion for a fit and healthy life with Washington DC area and beyond. It is a big responsibility, but one I am prepared to take on. Connecting with fitness brands who share a passion for enhancing our lives is very exciting.

How does fitness fit into a technology blog? It was my love of technology that has fueled my love of running and fitness. We now live in high tech times and that means our workouts are high tech. When I found high tech tools to track and enhance my workouts, I was hooked. I realized that I needed to find a way to make workouts fit in with my lifestyle. That’s when working out became fun for me. I want to teach others how they can use their love of technology to find a passion for fitness and living a healthy lifestyle.
