Making the Effort to Get Healthy

<p>My client invited my son and me to join her team for the #bubblerundesmoines.</p>

How have you been doing with your attempt to be slightly healthier this year than last? My efforts are plodding along.

A client of mine enjoys doing 5k walks and a while ago she invited me to come along for the #BubbleRunDesMoines this past Saturday. At the time I figured if I can do one, why not do two? So I signed the family up to do the 5k for the Autism Society of Iowa in April, then my son and I for the Bubble Run on Saturday.

<p>The autism walk was a full family effort.</p>

Unfortunately I couldn’t quite do half of the 5k in April, which was disappointing. This led me to be more determined for May and put in more practice. I’m proud to say that I was able to walk about two-thirds of the 5k on Saturday! My goal now is to plan for the walks again next year and be a finisher. Hopefully you will see that even your smallest effort is worth it. Last year I would have assumed I couldn’t do a 5k at all. This year I gave it a shot and was pleased enough with my progress that it outweighed my disappointment at not finishing.
