LiveFit Challenge Week 1: Leslie’s Update

Leslie Iles works in Radiology Services at Aurora BayCare Medical Center in Green Bay.

Six Aurora BayCare Medical Center have embarked on a wellness challenge that will change their lives forever! Over the next six months, these people will be coached, trained and transformed into triathlon-level athletes through the Aurora BayCare Sports Medicine Live Fit program. 

“Now that you have been chosen for our 6-Pack, how are you feeling about the journey ahead?”

My initial reaction to seeing Nick and Meaghan was nervousness and excitement all at once.  I was hyping myself up after the interview. There was a definite possibility that I would become one of the 6-pack members,  but at the same time what if I wasn’t chosen?  Would I still strive to complete the triathlon in June?

My answer was YES.  No matter what happened,  I was going to train for the triathlon. This has been on my bucket list, and being able to check it off  on June 3, 2012 will be a huge accomplishment.

I can’t wait to meet the other members of the 6-pack. I look forward to training with each one of them as we continue our quest to the finish line. These next five months will be physically and mentally challenging. There will be times where we may want to give up. But I know as a team, we will get over any obstacle and cross that finish line together.

My story has just begun, and I look forward to sharing my experience with my family, friends, co-workers and whoever else may find my story along with way.

So sit back and enjoy the ride!
