Beatriz attends my Tu/Th 8am Level 2 boot camp at Barton Hills Elementary. This past weekend she ran the Nike Women's Half Marathon in San Francisco. In my opinion, the best part of the race is receiving a Tiffany's necklace from a hot fireman at the finish line. Now that's the essence of work hard, play hard.
The first I did this race was 3 years ago, and I completed it ten minutes slower. Now this time around I was faster, and I felt stronger during the race with more power in my legs from the squats, lunges and kettlebell work. More importantly, the recovery has been easier.
I am so proud of Beatriz beyond this race. After 2 years of boot camp, she made a decision to commit to food logging and following the Zone. The balance of the Zone with food logging makes everyday life easier for her with children and a husband. She does not find herself caught on the spot with no food options and can still "have her cake and eat it too." She has turned into the athlete in class that never misses and is always right on point. I can't wait to see where she is at this time next year.
