I know wanting to better your health and get fit is a priority for most people, but making that leap and actually doing something to better our lives can be tough. 

Who Am I ?
I am the most un-athletic person you have ever met. As a child, I was the fat, picked on, poor kid with parents that couldn’t afford to pay for after school sports. Children in grade school were mean to me, I was never picked for teams at PE, ate alone with no friends. I found my comfort in candy and my dogs. I didn’t even know I was fat until I was 10 years old and another girl told me.
The summer before high school, I went to a basketball camp. The coach was very polite to me, the fat girl who couldn’t jump, was the slowest in the sprints and shot ‘granny style.’ He just said, “Vanessa, you probably want to get fit before basketball season starts.”
This was 1980 and for 3 Olympics, Frank Shorter was my hero. This man could run and ran with heart and just amazed me.  I wanted to run like him. I went to the library that night and got every book on running they stocked and read all night.  The next day I bought a pair of $19.99 tan and brown Nike’s, stayed up all night  again reading about running.
The next morning, at 5am, I went out to run. I made it 23 steps, just to the corner of the block. I sat down on the curb, crying between my huffing, puffing and trying to catch my breath under the yellow street light. As I started to walk the 23 steps back home, I changed my mind. If I could run 23 steps right now, maybe 25 steps tomorrow? I vowed to, this time, not give up in life when something was hard. This was a private vow to myself. I ran again this time about 25ft past the corner, and smiled. I had pushed myself and had succeeded. Sure, it hurt, and it wasn’t far, but it was better than yesterday. I lost 60lbs that summer and I ran my first marathon at 15 years old.
But running didn't just fix my weight problem, it fixed my mentality, making me a better student and happier person. 
I have been an avid equestrian, tennis player and runner excelling at all these sports. I don’t have any talent, I just know how to make hard work fun. Everyone can experience sports and enjoy their bodies, I want to show you how.
