First off…it is Friday. I need everyone to stop what they are doing and take a moment to appreciate the impending weekend.
Moving on. Yesterday was a BIG day for both myself and the YMCA. This was my second appearance on our local show, Daytime Tri-cities where we would be talking about “Eight To The Eight’s” Season II! This is a Biggest Loser Style competition that we do in the summer. It’s finale is a 8k run, with a live final weigh-in that kicks off a HUGE community even for our town, called Fun-Fest. Big, big fun!
We had some amazing people last season, so I am excited to see what season II has in store. Coming from someone who used to be extremely overweight….318 lbs (!!!) I can assure everyone that it is not a fun lifestyle. I wish I would have had something like this to kick my butt a long time ago! I think everyone deserves a chance for a wake-up call, and this competition is just the thing! The best part, it is FREE!
I am so excited about this program!!!!!!! It’s pretty cool being the “Bob”! I just wish my guns were as big as his. Alas, c’est la vie.
I want to give a special thanks to Daytime Tricities, and Amy-Lynn and Morgan for having us on, as well as our sponsors: Greater Kingsport Family YMCA, Performance Medicine, We Run Events, Chefs Pizza, and Family Dental Center.
