6 Year Legacy Runner at the San Diego Half Marathon!

This year my 6th year running this awesome race! 6th year comes with the perks of being a 6 year Legacy Runner. This was my 1st half Marathon since November and I felt really good running, staying on pace with random folks, focusing on my music, staying hydrated and getting mentally prepared to conquer the Dreaded WASHINGTON ST! Lol! I'm cool with my 2:00:17 but I may ask for a :30 second results change since I got held up by the trolley! 😑😑 (hey, it's the difference between 2 and sub-2... Call me petty! πŸ˜‚) I'm proud of all my #SiriusFitness folks who participated... Eduardo, Delia and of course Grace for running her FIRST Half! It was cool seeing the "Swole Sisters" (Natasha, Tish, Tammy) out to support Grace...and of course it was great seeing the "usual suspects", Lanae Battle rocking the Prayer and the National Anthem, Rudy Novotny announcing the race, the speedster Barry Spital (aka Barry Allen, The Flash), Bri Cat, Tina, Bruce, Clayton, Teresa, Donna & Robyn from the "colored section" (inside joke), Tracy keeping us safe, the San Diego Track Club family, the Milestone Crew (Chad and Greg) and many others I may not have mentioned. AND...Of course it's always GREAT when wifey Makena and the #Boyz are here for support! ❤️I can't wait to run my FAVORITE Half Marathon next year in my 7th Legacy Year! See y'all in 2018!

2017 Rebirth In Wellness: Holistic Health and Fitness fair...REBIRTH!

On January 28th, 2017 at City of Hope International, Sirius Fitness in conjunction with A Healthier Me’, held the 2017 ‘Rebirth In Wellness’ event, which is a Holistic Health and Fitness fair created by the owner of Sirius Fitness, Nasara Gargonnu in 2008. This event provides the community a free showcase of Health and Fitness Professionals sharing their wealth of knowledge through short lectures and fitness demonstrations. There were also numerous Wellness vendors with products and services.

    This year there was a impressive group of individuals taking part in this event. The event kicked off with Nasara moving the crowd with his signature Sirius Fitness warmup and then explaining that ‘Rebirth in Wellness’ was created to spread Health and Fitness to the Southeast community. He felt strongly about this due to the fact that the community was at risk for preventable health risks and diseases that could be remedied through proper knowledge and preventive care. Nasara also explained that he lost his father at an early age from Prostate cancer and that his goal is to make sure he live a lifestyle that allows him to be around for his own children. Dr. Suzanne Afflalo, the retired Kaiser doctor and mastermind behind the ‘A Healthier Me’ program, spoke about preventative care as a  means to combat disease. She was followed by Hajar Young who spoke about stress management through breathing, meditation and essential oils. Author of The Well: Where Fitness Begins Within, Sahsha Campbell-Garbutt, wrapped up by the lectures speaking about How a fit mind leads to a fit body!

    The fitness portion kicked off with Trena Bennett, creator of ‘GospelCise Fitness’ leading a heavenly inspired fitness routine that got the crowd motivated. Nasara & Moriah of Sirius Fitness followed with some fitness moves and dance fitness that kept the “party” going. Makena wrapped up the fitness with a ‘Dance it Out’ routine that brought the crowd together with a unifying dance.

    In addition to the knowledge of Health and Fitness, the participants also received awesome raffle items, drinks, healthy food and a tasty cooking demonstration! If you want any more information about future events from Sirius Fitness you can contact Nasara at siriusfitness@gmail.com of follow him on Facebook at Coach Nasara Gargonnu and Sirius Fitness Run and Fit Club.

2016 Ohana 5k and Toy Drive

The 2016 Ohana 5k and Toy Drive was great! This race was organized by Aztlan Athletics and the toys collected were donated to the Joan Kroc Center in San Diego! I ran this race about 3 years ago with my student, Angel and Sirius Fitness member, Tracy G. I originally went with no intention to run, just to simply pass out Hot Chocolate 15k flyers, but how can I resist an opportunity to warmup the crowd! πŸ˜œ ...and then why not run too?! Lol! I had a cute little 9 year old help me out on stage for a song and she ended up winning her age group! Was it the Sirius Fitness Warmup??? Lol...Maybe a little, but she was FAST! I look forward to my Sirius Fitness team running this in 2017!
