"Six years ago my Husband, Daughter & I were in a car accident that tragically claimed his life. Our Daughter and I were both critically injured as well. Healing is ongoing for our entire family, including our other Daughter.
Distraught, I began following "One Fit Widow" on Facebook. She too, had suffered a loss and was a young Widow at the time. I'd found a community that "got me". I loved how she focused on healing, fitness and love, not loss.
In Oct 2014 I took a leap of faith and attended my first Adventure Weekend in Lake Tahoe. Prior to the trip, I connected with several women through the private Lake Tahoe Facebook Page. Upon my arrival I immediately found these virtual friends as well as many more. That was the beginning of a very good thing for me. I have since been on two other trips and will be attending my fourth in Sedona next Feb.
In Jan 2016 I signed up for the very first 12 Week Challenge, where once again, I made many new virtual friends as well as others I'd met at past trips.
When that Challenge was over I joined the Quest Community. It has opened yet another door to camaraderie, accountability, fitness, nutrition & some laughs too. It has helped me connect with people all across the USA and a few in Europe!
I'm feeling much better emotionally and stronger physically. I'm doing things I never thought I would do. I'm living my life to honor my Late Husband and finding myself again.
A huge thank you to Michelle, Keith & all of the Coaches. I love you all "
