Bold is Beautiful!
(Live like you mean it.)

Happy New Year! It ’s resolution time again, when we take an honest look at who and what we are, then decide either to stay the course or up the ante. Are you where you want to be physically? Could your fitness resume’ use a centerpiece? Are you bored with the same old exercise regime? If it’s just to finish a race or to qualify for Boston…have I got a deal for you.

Any event deserves multiple goals. Do you run for fun? Fitness? Mental health? All of the above? Why not choose Leading Lady 2018 to pursue all of these valid challenges. We will suffer the indignities of physical decline, but we don’t have to take it sitting down. I will age, but I will not decay.

Address the significance of the moment, determine to run or walk one of the events, then just focus and do it. Be bold, be brazen, be beautiful…passion is contagious; come run with us.
