Motivational Monday! Featured Sneakers #6

It’s another joyous Monday here in Florida – hope you all had a fabulous weekend!

I just got done with my 5 mile tempo run where I had a PR at 44:30! Man, I am always so surprised by what your body and mind can do when you let yourself push through it!

It’s about that time for another Featured Sneakers this lovely Motivational Monday!
This week we have Ang, a fellow Sweatpink sister, who has been working on healthy eating and exercise in order to focus on weight loss:

Name: Ang Harris
Blog: Angiloo!

What is your favorite way to workout/exercise: water aerobics and walking
What is your #1 cheat food: chocolate!
What advise do you have for those starting on a fitness journey: Don’t give up, and take it slow. 
Dream destination race/location: Hawaii!
Favorite inspirational fitness personality/trainer: I love Jillian Michaels, but I also have a fondness for Richard Simmons… I met him once and he was so wonderful! My mom and I used to do his “Sweatin to the Oldies” when I was a kid.

Workout apparel must have (+brand): Old Navy. Although you can only find the larger sizes online, the price is reasonable and the clothes last forever! I still have yoga pants I bought three years ago, and the color hasn’t faded much, nor have they stretched out.

Motivational motto/quote: “I am a runner because I run. Not because I run fast. Not because I run far. I am a runner because I say I am. And no one can tell me I’m not.”- John Bingham

    Great PR Kat! Great Quote Ang! I love your attitude. A lot of people whom have wanted to get fit fail because they start with too much too fast. I like that you notice that you need to start slow. There is actually scientific facts and studies that support it as well as psychological.

    I love that quote. As a girl who started off unable to make it to the mailbox it really resonates with me. John Bingham rocks running quotes. Amazing story Ang!
