Just the other day, I had a life affirming experience. I workout on the daily with this amazing group of fitness professionals. They keep it fresh and new everyday through various FIIT training routines, that border on the ridiculous for a gal like me. I am challenged every day.
My favorite day is “Sports Day”. We play basketball in the big gym, after a strenuous warm up. If you don’t want to do that, there’s a frisbee option, also very fun.
We got divided into teams; 6×6. I introduced myself to Nyla, who was covering me. After she told me her name, She says ” but they call me Elmer, cuz I’m gonna stick to you like glue.” And she did. At the end we were all sweaty and out of breath and giddy. I asked Nyla how old she is… are you ready?
SEVENTY EIGHT!! THAT’S WHAY SHE SAID!! SEVENTY EIGHT!!
Standing next to her was Monet, who piped in “I’m sixty-nine!” And here I am feeling all old at fifty nine. No more! I love this place, and I want you to know, there are twenty somethings in the class, too! Oh, and one more thing – the AAY gals are going do the opening stretch for the 5K Funk Run next weekend on 4.22.18 – Earth Day! Benefitting the Silverlake Conservatory of Music. Because kids need music.
This is a super fun event, and if you put a team together for four or more, you can still pay a mere 20$ each for registration. It goes real fast as it’s only 2.5 miles and it’s a great way to start an Earth Day Sunday! Bring your kazoo and make some music!
