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! 😜 ...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!

Celebrating the 2nd Annual "Sirius Fitness Day" (...in San Diego)

Thank you, thank you, thank you ALL who came thru tonight and got their "sweat on" at Cardio Blast! Thank you also for celebrating the 2nd annual "Sirius Fitness Day" with me! One year ago, today I received the honor of becoming an official partner with Live Well San Diego, which is a San Diego County initiative which promotes Health and Wellness in San Diego County! This class theme today was "The Future of Fitness" so I showcased up and coming YOUNG instructors in the fitness world. Liliana (a former & current class participant and OF COURSE...one of my original students) and Jackie (she used to watch our kids at Jackie Robinson Family YMCA...now she's kicking butt as an instructor) Thank you again to the Live Well San Diego & the County of San Diego for the honor! #SiriusFitness#LiveWellSanDiego

The 2016 MCRD Boot Camp Challenge (TEAM SIRIUS FITNESS)

We run a lot! 5k's, 10k's, Half Marathons, etc... but the MCRD Boot Camp Challenge is the ONE run that I attempt to get ALL my Sirius Fitness folks to participate. ONE...its challenging...TWO...its fun...Three...I've been running it since 2009 and FINALLY... it always falls on my Birthday week!! 😏  We organize a BIG group, stick with folks on our fitness level and most importantly, we wear ORANGE! lol! I almost didn't do it due to the cast on my wrist (see pics...lol), but I took it easy and kept my "since 2009" streak alive! The 2016 MCRD Boot Camp Challenge was challenging but I survived and it is now..."in the books!" Great job to my Sirius Fitness crew...They "Kicked Butt!" Those who didn't make it...hopefully we will see them in 2017! ~> RSVP for the 2017 EVENT
