A Trail of Two Goals

on April 28, 2013

I can’t think of a more beneficial way to spend the morning than to start it off with a fun and sporty 5K race, followed shortly by a tree planting event! Lucas and I took part in an event in our community called Healthy Earth, Healthy You and enjoyed a few early hours doing just that: taking care of our bodies and the earth! We chugged along a trail close to our house, feeling the surge of adrenaline and endorphins as we crossed the finish line. When we were re-hydrated and re-energized, we joined the after party as we found our individual trees to plant along the Duwamish River. It felt great to celebrate our accomplishment by lending a hand in creating a natural environment that will beautify the area and help to oxygenate the air!

I encourage all of you to spend the last few days of this month, deemed Earth Month, doing something to help the earth and yourself feel better. There are many volunteer opportunities in your community, if you just look for something that speaks to you. As well, it is good to step outside and take a walk around the neighborhood or visit a local park. Getting out in the open air will help your mind and your body feel great. We all have the ability to step outside and make a difference in our communities and our lives by being more active participants. Try it out and see how good it makes you feel!
