THE STORY:

Here is the whole story - in the 90's I worked hard and smoked - as a very active child and young adult there were not many "sports" I could't play well. I was alway competetive and was never picked last. For those of you who remember all of those bad memories!! 

I played soccer and softball and did some bike riding through my 20's.. THEN my friends introduced me to Adventure Racing - not the most popular of events but the most challenging I have ever encountered! WELL I still smoked cigarettes - - I trained with my friends and in Adventure Racing you RUN, Mountain bike and Kayak!! SO the RUN hurt me badly.. 

And we trained - my "team" (friends I thought) didn't wait for me they ran their pace and it was my job to KEEP UP!! WOW that changed my life - A little competition, motivation, team spirit and I started the journey.

It took me about a year to become a better runner - I quit smoking - HARDEST THING EVER - and started "training" for adventure races all over the South East! It was the best decision I ever made - the challenge of adventure racing - different from Triathlons but there are many similarities - Not only did I quit smoking and start exercising more, my friends changed, my attitude, my income level - and more personal things we can chat about another time :)

Then came FLIPANY - as a business owner at the time - I decided others needed to experience this change or positive peer pressure; that's what is was for me and FLIPANY was born!!! 

SO now I ask you to be that example for someone else - My teammates and friends inspired me to run, ride and swim and it changed my life! Get excited, run (or shuffle) and complete your first 5K, help someone else complete their first 5K, run faster, engage your coworkers or family members.

You can also make a donation and help support youth and adult programs in South Florida.
