My journey to 212 came about as it did for many 212 family members. I was active in high school and college sports, got married, had children, and then the old sports injury from college came back to haunt me.
To start, I’d like to thank Kerry and the 212 team for the opportunity to be the subject of January’s Member Spotlight. These stories inspire me every month and it’s an honor to be able to share some of my story with you.
As 2017 draws to a close, I was caught in the middle of my end of year inventory.... counting my blessings and thinking of all the areas in my life that need some improvement, when I was caught by surprise.
I am honored to have been chosen as November’s Member Spotlight! My relationship with 212 can really be summed up in how I talk about it. In the past, I would say, begrudgingly, “I’m going to the gym.”
When I received the email from Kerry congratulating me that I was selected for this month's member spotlight the first thing I said to myself was "SELF?!?...Is he RRREALLY sure about that giving me an open forum?!?"
There are a lot of things I love in this world. Most are obvious...my two adorable sons, my sweet husband, the posse of fellow moms who keep me sane, the Patriots (3-1 without Brady...suck it, Goodell!), mint chocolate chip ice cream and this big room in Rumford...
Lots of people as me, "How on Earth can you get up at 5 in the morning to work out?" My answer usually is: "I just get up and do it." To which I keep hearing, "Yeah, but how can you, it's so early, I could never do it."...
