Story Time

Let me read you a story..
ok. more like you read the story...

Everyone came out to watch the healthy monster triathlon. "Elmo and his friends always stretch before a big race." Said Elmo.
The first event was swimming. "Elmo loves to swim fast!" said Elmo. Still, Murray took the lead.

Zoe moved ahead in the tricycle race. "I'm pedaling as fast as I can!" Zoe called to her fans. "I love riding my tricycle!"

Elmo ran like the wind, ending the triathlon in a 3-way tie! 
"We did it! We finished!" Murray said.
"Exercise is fun! And healthy!" added Zoe!
"NO matter who wins!"

Just like the monsters, we need all aspects of fitness endurance, stamina, strength, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility, balance and accuracy. (Especially, with lots of fur) . In our life,  we use multiple aspects of fitness in every single day. Not just when we are tested.You may not even realize it. But you do.
In your life it doesn't matter if we finish first or last. The point of the matter is that you gave it your all at that specific place and time. Rather it be in your relationships, your religion, your job, or your health. When we are healthy we are happy. Strive for that. Be determined to be the best person you can be.  When you are with your family talk with them, learn and laugh with them. In your workout, push your limits. In your job, give it your all. Make time for the important things in life. You never know when something unexpected will happen. In fact, when it does you will be able to take anything head on. You are the commander of your life. Wake up each morning with the determination and mindset that each day will be a good day. Nothing can hold you back. Be proud of who you are, so every night you can say "You did it!" No matter the challenge you faced that day.

Now, I'm going to go see how fast my tricycle can go...

Have a good day!!!
