Here is just a quick post about one of our favorite clients John Arriati (65 years young) running his 26th consecutive race in San Fransisco. I will just post his comments from Facebook here with a few pics. Enjoy!
”1985 to 2011 – 26 years! This is it! The end of my commitment to run the Bay to Breakers in SF until it’s 100th anniversary with my friend Tony. Live thorugh this one and it is y last. Time to head out!
In 1985 I made a pact with my friend Tony to run the Bay To Breakers 12K in SF till the 100th. Today was the 100th and our 26th yr to run it. My goal was to run the entire race, including the steep Hayes St hill, in 90 mins or less. I did it in 77:52 mins!
Thanks to Totally New You for the workouts that built up my strength and stamina. In my head I heard, Mistress Kym saying “Just a little more to the top of the hill – DON’T QUIT!“; J-Lo saying “You can do it!; and saw Lisa with a contorted look of pain, yet not giving up, which inspired me to do same.”
