The Carlsbad-based Move Your Feet Before You Eat®! Foundation was created to promote health and well being through incorporating regular physical fitness into daily life. The foundation provides free Move Your Feet Before You Eat! Refrigerator magnets, Mileage Club materials, incentive certificates for program leaders and participants, and motivational videos and speakers to schools throughout North County. The Foundation donates to schools and non-profits that encourage physical activity. It is for all ages, but its sharpest focus is on encouraging physical activity among young people, who face an epidemic of lifestyle diseases such as diabetes that are an increasing threat, in part, because today's children aren't getting enough physical activity. Since 2007, the Foundation has donated more than $380,000 to local schools and non-profits in North County.
A little inspiration today!Mike Fremont, 100 years young and still getting after it on the 3 mile evening run. 🔥💥💪His canoeing season has begun; weather permitting he’s canoeing 6 miles/3 times a week. He runs 5 miles/3 times a week and says he’s currently at about 12 pull ups. He still drives well. He can remember the first and last names of people he’s met one time months ago. That’s probably the most impressive! Mike always amazes me about his energy which lifts the mood of everyone he meets. He recently returned from completing a podcast with Rich Roll. I’m excited that his story is about to be shared with a much larger audience. I don’t think I’ve ever been so excited about any podcast. It’s coming this summer. What do two vegan runners do after a good run; we picked up some Chipotle burritos. The young man behind the counter said, “Stay dry”. I said, “We just finished with our 3 mile run. Mike’s 100 and not deterred by a little rain.” The young man’s eyes got really big. “He’s really 100!? Wow!” The rest of the employees all got giant smiles and wished Mike a great rest of the day. Mike later told me, “It’s fun to get old.” I should mention he recently finished 3rd place in the Eye of the Dragon 10k for age category 80 and above. 🐲Looking forward to a canoeing/kayaking adventure together next! #dreambigGlendale Garden Centre ...
