Members at Farrell's Centennial continue to take on new challenges and test their level of strength, determination, and fitness, all while having fun with friends. This weekend Team FXB rallied around the 2016 Summer winner, Ashlee Keith, in support of her mother who lives with MS and together the ran and conquered the obstacles at the annual 5K MuckFest.
Ashlee explains "MuckFest is an annual event sponsored by the National Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Society. MuckFest is a race very near and dear to my family's heart. My mother was diagnosed with MS in 2001 and was almost immediately confined to a wheelchair. She is truly the definition of a fighter. She has spent her life giving selflessly despite the limitations this disease has given her. MuckFest has given my family a fun way to not only show support to everyone affected by MS, but most importantly a way to show support to our mother. We decided to do this race every year as a way of standing with her and for her during her fight against MS. We never imagined that this year we would be sharing this race and standing alongside such an amazing group of people. After hearing our mother's story, the FXB family rallied behind my family and joined our team. The friends I have met at FXB are not just workout partners, they are lifelong friends and truly the definition of gym family. The support this group has shown to our family means the world to me and has truly touched my heart. I am proud to be a part of this amazing gym and can't wait until next year's race. Thank you FXB."
In addition to MuckFest on Saturday, Jolene and Misty completed their first 14er on Sunday! Misty & Jolene both started their 10-weeks at FXB last August and continued their journey as part of the FIT program.
Jolene: We are both very family focused, have young kids, and need to balance busy careers that can entail lots of travel. FXB was our individual commitments to ourselves.
Misty: FXB provides me with 45-mins, 6-days a week that I can focus on me! In the last year it has completely changes my perception of nutrition and made me stronger!
Jolene: Plus we have gone on to challenge ourselves with other “adventures” in addition to our 5:15am class!
Misty: That’s right, this last year we completed a ½ marathon, participated in Muckfest, conquered numerous 5K races, and just the last weekend completed our first 14er....a hike up Gray’s Peak at 14,270 ft.
Jolene: All of our adventures have been routed in FXB and our commitment to bettering ourselves.
Way to go Team FXB!!
