Team Decatur: Time to Train

Michelle from Decatur Jazzercise kept us moving and smiling!

Yesterday’s Team Decatur and Get Active! Atlanta Kickoff Event was so much fun! We did Jazzercise, Afridancercise, and NIA Dance. There was a lot of information on staying fit and healthy in the Health Expo, and we tried to stay cool after all this exercise by standing by the Fire Department’s Misting Trailer.

Time to Train!
So, now it is time to start training for the Kaiser Permanente Corporate 5K in September. A few of us began this morning wtih a brisk walk around Decatur beginning at Beacon Hill Center.  Join us for one or all of the FREE walk or run training sessions: visit www.decaturga.com/teamdecatur for the training schedule.

Mayor Bill Floyd and Jeff Galloway welcomed attendees and talked about the importance of staying fit and healthy.
