These Shoes Were Made For….

Submitted by: Ramona

It’s my second training run and it actually went really well! 4 miles today and I felt strong afterwards. So strong that I decided to take a Zumba class after my run. You see…while I was on a little “run-cation” I really got into other forms of exercise. I was getting my cross train ON! ;-) Zumba, by far, turned out to be my favorite!!! Well did you see my shoes? Yeah those are my Brooks Adrenalines….AHEM…running shoes! Running shoes are made for RUNNING! I became oh so sure of that within minutes of the class. Luckily I already knew it so I didn’t try most of the moves. I knew my shoes weren’t going to allow my ankles to do all of that! Don’t try it people cause you WIlL regret it! Running shoes…running….Cross Trainers…anything else! I may have to pack two pairs of shoes in my gym bag this summer cause I can not give up my “Stop….DropPauuuuse“!

About DSTPRL

Who I am My name is Diatta Harris and I’m a 40-something wife, mother of 2 and career woman who is constantly inspired by anything fitness related. My professional background includes a Master of Healthcare Administration and Master of Business Administration. I am also a project management professional by trade in the healthcare IT space. As you can see, I have created a life and career around healthcare. What I call myself I consider myself a fitness enthusiast and love researching anything that will help me get better fit mentally, physically and spiritually. I also like sharing this special information with others as it is better to give than to receive. My motivation In 2005 I started running with a former co-worker who was diagnosed and fighting breast cancer. She WON! I was so inspired by her we started running together every week on the NCR trail in Maryland. Fast forward to 2008 – I met up with a friend I had not seen in a few years and she looked FANTASTIC! She was fit and trim and was generous enough to share with me her secret weapon. Her trainer who worked at Brick Bodies. I quickly got her name and started working out with her for about 6 months from 2008 to 2009. I then began working out on my own in my home gym but it wasn’t the same. I reunited with my trainer April 2011 and have continued to train with her 2 times a week, 30 minute sessions each. And let me just say she makes me EARN IT! Why I started this blog I want to share my passion for wellness and fitness with all of you to encourage you to live the most healthy lifestyle you can. I hope some of you are also encouraged and willing to share your fitness journey through the mountains and valleys to help inspire others who feel it too daunting a task to be fit in conjunction with managing a balanced life. What inspires me I am constantly inspired when I meet and talk to folks who are also into fitness whether professionally or recreationally! I am impresed with those who have taken the time and have the discipline to make their bodies perfection inside and out with proper nutrition and workouts. What I find, I want to share with YOU! Who I meet, I want to introduce to YOU! I am excited to be here and hope you choose to join me in this journey. Nothing ventured, nothing gained! Let’s GO! View all posts by DSTPRL
