Do you remember field day? It was almost always my favorite day of school. Races, obstacle courses, challenges, team work, and fun meant for an awesome day. Well...it's been about 25 years since I have competed in a three legged race. Last Saturday, a group of nearly 30 people from the FOF Pace camp got together to compete in our third annual FOF Pace Survivor event. It was full of laughs, competition, and tons of fun. We had three teams, and we all set out to win this year's medal. Hey...we might be slightly competitive, but we sure are a lot of fun.
Start a business...we thought. It can't be that hard...we thought. It's been 10 years of trial and error. We've laughed, and we've cried. We've succeeded, and we've failed. Despite the sweat and the tears, we wouldn't change a thing. It's been a ride for sure. Here is a little of our story and a few things we have learned along this adventure of business ownership.
So, we think that 10 years in business is a pretty big deal. As we were thinking and reflecting on how we wanted to celebrate, the idea of a 10K prediction run was thrown out there. See, we didn't want a typical anniversary celebration. You know, the kind with tons of food and way too many adult beverages. We are here running a fitness business and promoting healthy eating here, so a binge eating and drinking celebration was off the table.
We went with the theme, 10 Years Strong, 10 Years Tough. The course was mapped, times were predicted, and we all showed up at Bayview Park on Saturday, January 6th to celebrate 10 Years of FOF.
