So here it is, my FIRST blog. 

It sure has taken a long time. And what better time to start than now? With time being non existent during the vivid-19 lockdown in SA. 

Let’s not dwell on the negative. There’s plenty of that going around at the moment. I much rather look at this time we have in isolation as a BLESSING. 

We have spent most of our adulthood consumed by the rat race we call life. Always on the go. Always stressed. Always tired. Never “enough time” to actually sit back and appreciate the world around us. 

That ends now. 

With the world at a standstill, now is the time to self reflect. Re-evaluate what’s important in life. Share precious moments with our loved ones. Recharge. 

With that being said… staying motivated and fit confined to our homes has proven difficult. When I started my fitness and weight loss journey I’ve always had a support system. I’ve had my baby sister Shayna to push me. Watching my big sister Nathalie on her weight loss journey inspired me to constantly better myself and set an example. The support system of our Running Kin family and Kin Fitters has been my most recent motivation to up my game. And now – like an island in the middle of the ocean – I only have myself. 

If it wasn’t for modern technology, I have no doubt I would slip back into my old ways. 

We are lucky enough to live in a time where we have the internet. So staying “connected” with everyone is possible. Not the same as person to person, but we learn to adapt. Evolve. 

With Running Kin and Kin Fit left in limbo, we had no choice but to think out the box. Think of a way to help our members, and in doing so help ourselves, stay fit and connected during these uncertain times. 

It was a no brainer! KIN FIT would continue. Online. 

And…. IT. WAS. AMAZING. 

With Monday being our first session, it was a learning curve. Adjustments needed to be made. The way we interact needed to change.

I left the session feeling rejuvenated. Feeling inspired again. Motivated. 

Truth is… as much as we enjoy what we do, there is nothing more rewarding than helping others achieve their own goals. 

When people ask you for help, they share a little bit of their soul with you. Where dreams have been buried. 

As I leave you… remember that this is YOUR time. Your time to rediscover those lost dreams. It’s never too late. 

Happy running,
Ron
