My mum started walking during our family’s Fitness February competition. Our goal was to encourage physical activity in the form of active minutes on our Garmin/Fitbit devices during our coldest winter month (temperatures as low as -40 degrees Celsius this year) and to try to be more active in the new year. The mums in our group sparked great competition, continuing to set the bar high for active minutes and providing “words of encouragement” when I was in last place. My mum thoroughly impressed me with her competitive spirit and perseverance throughout the month, keeping those active minutes counting until the last day of competition. I am proud of my mum and am looking forward to her fierce participation again in our March Madness competition!
