About

GET FIT WITH US!

In the spirit of Z-HOPE (Zetas Helping Others Excel – the national service program of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Incorporated), we introduce this year’s Fit & Finer 5k – A virtual walk, run or jog event to “empower participants to develop health promoting lifestyle choices across the lifespan,” (www.zphib1290.org). In preparation of this year’s occasion, participants are being encouraged to “Get Fit With Us” through a series of interactive activities leading up to the day of the race which will
be held on May 22, 2022. The Fit and Finer 5k offers a welcoming atmosphere to get fit and have fun while doing so. You may walk, jog or run WHERE YOU ARE! Event proceeds support the chapter’s goal to raise $1,500 for March of Dimes.

Fitness to me has so many moving pieces. It’s physical (of course), mental and spiritual as well. When I was younger, I was very active with running, skating, dancing and cycling. Those fun things changed for me when I became older because my health changed. I was no longer able to do these things with ease. It took a lot of preparation/planning for me to do simple things like walking. This is when I realized that I had to mentally prepare myself for movement. I began incorporating mediation and yoga into my practice and then I noticed when I took the time to decompress and breathe, a lot of the things I struggled with started to become easier for me. My goal is to be active daily and be an example for my family and friends. Fitness is sweat, tears, training, long days/nights, commitment, diet, fun and embracing bad days as well as good ones. Fitness is not a fad… no quick results. It’s definitely a lifestyle change and is a marathon, not a sprint! With the right tools in place (proper diet, water intake, adequate sleep, warm ups, workouts, cool downs, stretching, and mediation), you can conquer your dreams and fears and become unstoppable.  It is my hope that your participation in our Fit & Finer 5k enhances your fitness lifestyle and is the catalyst to a life changing experience for those just starting their fitness journey. Fitness is LIFE! GET FIT WITH US!

Fitness is more than a New Year’s resolution…It’s a LIFESTYLE!

It cannot be defined universally.

It’s something different for us all.
