During my last couple days here in Polk county, Florida I’ve been taking the time to visit one of my favorite little parks in the area. Nestled in the heart of Winter Haven, Fl right on the Polk State College campus is perhaps one of the most under-rated parks around.
Perfection on the baseball field.
Hands down to the pull-up queen!
The running path here isn’t one of the best or longest around, but with scenic views of the baseball diamond, soccer fields, and nearby lakes it is pretty good. As you can see from the photo I didn’t look too upset so if you’re in the area I would recommend stopping by at least once or twice.
The outdoor workout stations here were what kept bringing me back. You literally can work everything from chest and back to quads and core. Another good thing to note is that unlike many outdoor workout stations they offer step by step exercises to do each day.
Coming from a family with a breast cancer survivor in the household the upcoming Susan G. Komen Walk has always been something I’ve wanted to do. Luckily, now the opportunity to do good and raise money for this righteous cause is better than ever. The walk itself runs October 4-6 averaging 20 miles each day. Each team is required to raise a minimum of $2300 for the cause and will be aided by the foundation every step of the way.
How I plan to Help
To help raise money for the cause I plan to auction off the 3 days for the event in hopes of tripling this requirement. Race day specifics and details are not yet set in stone, but odds are this will not be something I’m doing alone. Follow along as I give updates on the event and details about my potential running partner/s.
Just got word that this cool local band from Reading, PA has decided to give PaidtoRun a shot. The band “Bloated Roadkill” is composed of 4 members (Groundhog, Possum, Raccoon, and Dawg) from the Berks area who started jamming together in late 2008. After several hours of playing together at a mutual friend’s house on Christmas day 2008 the group decided to take their passion for music even further and create a band.
