I loved my Facebook feed in the last few weeks. I scrolled and scrolled through pictures of smiling little ones holding signs or chalkboards. Some were a little apprehensive of the new year, but smiling. I love fall. I love the fresh start of a new school year. While the carefree days of summer may be fun, I long for the return of the routine to reset us.
Behind every little face, there is a mom who gets a fresh start too. For us at FIT4MOM Midtown Raleigh we begin our fall schedule and have new class offerings. Last Tuesday, the day after Labor Day, I laced up my sneakers at 5:30 am for the first run of Run Club. After a beach weekend with friends to celebrate the end of summer I needed to jump back into my workouts with two feet. (Or put one foot in front of the other, you know what I mean.) We run a 10k together in November. I love seeing how much running stamina our moms gain in eight weeks.
Sunday night I joined our Body Back moms for photos and measurements before the session officially begins Monday. I took photos of moms holding a sign that read "Fall 2017 Before." They were smiling, but a little apprehensive. These moms are embarking on an eight week journey of improving fitness, nutrition and overall health.
By the end of Body Back and Run Club the summer heat will be replaced by falling leaves. Anxious smiles will be replaced by smiles of accomplishment. Our kids will be smarter and our mamas will be stronger.
Fall is the perfect fresh start. Fall into fitness with us. Check out the schedule and join us!
