ORANGE COUNTY running calendar | Winter 2018

Family and Friends,

Happy New Year! Oftentimes, this time of year is full of reflection and inspired by goal-setting. If your new year’s resolution includes health in 2018, I have some news to share with you!

If you follow me, you know that I am an avid runner and running coach. Movement is one of the best ways to invest in your health. If your home is your greatest investment, then investing in your health is your most important 401K.

Running is the best way that I have found to invest in my family’s health. Whether your new year’s resolution is a personal commitment or a family affair, planning to participate in a race is one of the best ways to set a fitness goal. A race sets a date for fulfilling your fitness goal.

If you’re interested in making it a family affair, which The Swans most certainly do, I could not say enough great things about We Run Orange County's Kids (WeROCK). This nonprofit, public-service corporation was just featured in Runner’s World!

Life is like a Marathon. The mission of We ROCK is to teach our community’s teenagers the important skills of goal-setting, discipline, and self-confidence through the design and delivery of instructional programs for proper training for and completion of a marathon (OC Marathon Festival). For more information, click here.

As always, if you or any of your friends or family have questions, please don’t hesitate to Contact Us. We are only a call, text or email away!

Love Where You Live, Give Where You Love!
