As our FOODPLAY troupes travel the country, charged with the task of empowering our nation’s children to take charge of their own health, so do we here in the FoodPlay office strive to practice those messages in our own daily lives.
The path to physical fitness is often quite personal. What works for one person may be entirely irrelevant to the next, thanks to any number of factors—from age and health history to more practical concerns, like simply finding the time to take care of ourselves amidst the general chaos of our working lives. With all of that in mind, I’ve asked some of our staff to bring you their stories—not as any kind of rubric for personal success, but rather in the hope that they may provide some sense of inspiration and camaraderie for any of you who may be facing the same challenges or enjoying similar triumphs.
