This week I’m asking you to join me in the race I run every year. I want as many of you as possible to run with me as my “Wellness Warrior” team in the 74th Manchester Road Race! As most of you know, I gave Dr. Oz my cape that I usually wear in every Manchester turkey day road race. So this year I decided to replace my cape with a team, my “Wellness Warrior” team.
Anyone who is able is welcome to join my team and run this road race with me. It’s not about running it in a certain time; it’s about finishing as a team. I don’t care if you start practicing today or if you are an advanced runner who can leave me in the dust – you are welcome to join.
Teamwork and having others to help support me has been very beneficial in my weight loss/maintenance journey. Now it’s my turn to help you! Four years ago I couldn’t do 1 pushup and no more than 2 sit-ups, never mind run a road race. However, by following Dr. Oz’s advice I’m now able to do all of these things and more.
To register for this road race go to Manchester Road Race’s website. You can buy a “Wellness Warrior” team t-shirts from me, and a portion of the proceeds will go to charity. If you have any specific questions you can contact me on Facebook (Jennifer Lynn Reopell Szall.)
This is a race where most everyone dresses up, which is what originally gave me the inspiration to have my mom, Linda, make me my "Thank you Dr. Oz" cape. It will be great to run with my “Wellness Warrior” team in our matching T-shirts. We will make a team vow that we run and finish the race as a team and that no one will be with left behind!
If you’ve never crossed a finish line, now’s your time to do so with me and I’m excited to have you aboard!
I even have some of my old high school friends running with me, Brenda and Corina. My friend Jamie who has now lost more than 20 pounds will be joining, along with my 63-year old Mom Linda, and maybe even my 85-year old grandmother, Dorothy! No matter what your current age or issues, I welcome you to join me! Never say never because dreams do come true and to have you on my team would mean the world to me. I want you to have that incredible feeling of crossing that finish line with me!
I may be a dreamer, but I’m also the creator of my own destiny – and you can be too!
