for a lot of people; including me. Falling out of good habits seems so much easier than getting back into (or learning) new ones. Melissa and I both have had the experience with the struggle of weight gain and falling out of shape, then working hard-together- to get back into shape and be
healthy. This experience combined with the amazing involvement of our first “Mud Run” in September 2012, was the driving passion behind the idea of an “S'Klallam Warriors Mud Run”.
That idea turned into a dream, and that dream is becoming a reality. We thought “If WE can do this and have fun while getting healthy, why can’t we help others do it too!” After combining all of our ideas together we came up with ways to get our people excited to get healthy while instilling the feeling of community bonding.
Since November of 2012 when I began to realize this dream was becoming a reality, I got myself back into the gym and on the right track of eating well. I wanted to be able to show people by my actions that despite a busy schedule, children, and many other obstacles, that together…
we can do anything! With Melissa’s help, I got back into the groove. So far I have lost 20 pounds and gained so much endurance back.
I am so excited, along with many others, to see the completion of our first “S’Klallam Warrior Mud Run”. There are many people in the community who are just as excited to see us all come together to create an event that is healthy, fun, exciting, AND combines our culture with an incredible event at our beautiful Blyn property.
