The best resolution I've ever made and kept is this: "Do what you say you're going to do." It's how I lost 50 pounds at The Studio (MDR) and it's the reason I completed a half marathon. Our head trainer often says that what we do at the studio will help us in every other area of our lives. He's right. The cardio, balance, stability, flexibility, and strength training we do at The Studio (MDR) prepared me for the run. And with the support of fellow MDR warriors, Beata and Brian, we did it!
Running the half marathon was probably one of the hardest things I've ever done. The hills around Dodger Stadium were a beast! But crossing the finish line was one of the most rewarding things! The Studio (MDR) not only helped me physically, but mentally as well. Strengthening my core and legs definitely helped in training for my run, but when parts of my run got tough, I was mentally able to push through. To be able to challenge myself and not give up is something I've gotten out of coming to The Studio (MDR)!
This half marathon was a breeze! I can't even express how easy my long runs are now because of how strong my body is thanks to The Studio (MDR). What was most important on this specific run is this: I was so happy to have been part of Brian and Lindsay's first half marathon experience. I'm SO PROUD of them!
