Sometimes all it takes is a crazy idea to change your whole life. Two years ago, after visiting southwest Florida, I decided that this was where I was going to make my home. The cold, dark, New York winters were really getting to me and it was time to plan for a change. I wanted to swim, bike and run outdoors all year round and I wanted to do it before I was too old to enjoy it! So, here I am-in paradise. Saying goodbye to beloved friends and clients was difficult, but I do believe that they all understood my reasons for leaving. I am loving my new life in the tropics. I wake each morning to the most beautiful water view and abundant sunshine. I am once again inspired to help others get fit and feel good about themselves. New beginnings are awesome. Don’t let fear hold you back from making a change in your own life-take a risk and believe in yourself!
