A few weekends ago, I had the pleasure of joining in with a group of women to participate in a 5K walk/run. On a beautiful, sunny Saturday morning, we gathered at Lake Calhoun for the First Annual Let’s Move Women and BF (best friends) 5K Run/Walk Race. Organizer Mary Hamilton shared with me that she and fellow organizer, Serena Wright, were inspired by First Lady Michelle Obama’s efforts to fight childhood obesity. They decided to reach out to their network of friends and invite us all participate. We had a wonderful time of fitness, friend-making, and fun. Yet, like the first lady, Mary and Serena feel strongly about the serious matter of our declining health, and organizing this race was their way of being part of the solution, while inspiring others to do the same.
