Get Fit and Help Others

The August/September 2008 issue of THE HUB Magazine has got the best FALL PREVIEW of what's coming to Sacramento and it gives you the best of photos for where we've been this past summer.  We've been everywhere getting beautiful pictures of men, women and children at the Juneteenth Festival, the 2008 BET Awards in Lost Angeles, the Super Summer Soul Jam at Raley Field in West Sac, Meadowview Jazz Festival in South Sac and at the Berkeley Jazz Festival.

I hope you've got your calendar marked for the Tina Turner concert, the Capital City Football Calssic, Sacramento's Exceptional Black Women Brunch and the 2008 Hub Choice Awards.  If you are new to Sacramento and just picking up The Hub Magazine, you should sign up now to receive our bi-monthly publication so that it comes directly to your mailbox. 

I'm so excited about how Sacramento is exploding with things to do, people to meet and places to go.  Right now I'm deciding if I should begin training for an upcoming Marathon in 2009.  As my celebrity/MC host of "Inside Black Sacramento" is wearing a size 6 dress, I'm aiming to lose at least a dress size by my birthday (October 10) and also lose 30 pounds for the 2008 Hub Choice Awards.  I enjoy jogging at least 1 day a week, but to prepare for this upcoming marathon I'm told that I will need to begin training 2 days a week for 3 hours starting in September (so I'm thinking about it).  The American Heart Association and the American Stroke Association presents the "Train to End Stroke"--a amarothon training and fundraising program that helps support vital research, education programs and services to fight stroke, reduce disability and save lives.  Train to End Stroke is a challenge-but you can do it!  You can achieve your full (26 miles) or half (13 miles) marathon goal.  You can join too as the training begins in September.  Contact the Sacramento Chapter located at 2007 0 Strret in Sacramento.  Call (916) 446-6505 or 888-242-5867.  E-mail or visit  Get Fit. Eat Healthier. Help Others. Join Train to End Stroke.
