VON Guelph Wellington News:
From Kelly Gee
We hope that everyone had an amazing holiday season! We are kick starting January 2020 with yet another SMART Exercise Challenge. This year we are going to have the VON SMART participants’ row across all the great lakes. We have calculated that the distance we would need to travel to cross each of the lakes from one end to the other is 2087 km. We are going to assume that one row equals one kms (our SMART rows are powerful). Therefore we are going to see how long it takes each site to complete 2087 rows.
Towards the end of every December, those of all ages reflect on the year they’re leaving behind and start focusing on the future. January really is a great time to set some New Year’s goals in an attempt to better yourself in one way or another. The hectic holiday season has come to a close, and you can now get settled back into your daily routine. Or, better yet, create a new routine to ensure you’re getting the most out of all life has to offer.
