FIT CHALLENGE: Ontko prepares for 5K

May 22, 2012


It was nice last week seeing the pictures from my visit to the quarry with my personal trainer Trevor Tieche of Bodi N Balance.

I hope you noticed I was usually smiling.  It was hard work, but it was fun! I’m not dreading running any more.  It’s become a part of me.  People have been so friendly at Bodi N Balance.  They are always positive and motivating me to keep on going.  And that helps!

I worked my part-time job this past weekend as a tour guide for seventh-graders from Michigan.  They spent Saturday at Cedar Point and then Sunday at Put-In-Bay.  It was easy enough to keep the diet under control because all but one of my meals was on my own.  The one meal was pizza at Frosty’s and I was able to order a chicken salad.

I’ve been trying to work in more running because next Saturday is the 5K in Bellevue.  I have to say I’m looking forward to this event.  I want to remind everyone though that I am not running this first 5K to come in first or even near the top.  But it will be a great accomplishment for me to have even entered and finished the race.  After that I will work on speed.

We’re nearing the end of our six months as FIT Challengers.  I’ve hated to see it change from 12 months to 6 months because we are barely getting started.  But I am so thankful for this wonderful start.  Keep up the good work Derek and Craig!
