Family Fitness Fest

The first-ever South Washington County Family Fitness Fest took place at East Ridge High School this evening at 6:30-8:30 pm. I wanted to go when I first heard about it in an email I received from school and had it marked on my calendar.

My kids were not as enthusiastic as I was, but I talked them into going together. We also invited one of my son’s friend to go with us.

Shortly after we arrived, I was stopped by one of the event coordinators. She saw me with a bunch of kids and asked me if the reporter for Woodbury Patch, Jolie Mouton, could do a short interview with me on why I came to the event. Being a writer myself, I wanted to fully support what other writers do. So I had a brief conversation with Jolie. I told her I am on the Health & Wellness Committee at work and I am interested in anything related to health and wellness.

When Jolie wanted to take a picture of me and my kids, they run away and didn’t want to participate. So I ended up being by myself in the picture. I am not so excited about that picture.

I didn’t get to the mini yoga session as I wanted to. But I listened to the motivational message by Carrie Tollefson, Olympian runner. 

I really liked the healthy snack – build your own yogurt parfait. We mixed yogurt with several different fruit. Yummy!

As a bonus, my daughter also won a door prize – a gift card.

It was certainly a fun event for us. We were glad we went.

Thanks to all the organizers, volunteers and sponsors. It takes a lot of work to make it happen.
