My story, My thought....
It's all about trying to stay healthy!!!!
And to answer your other question, I'm a bookkeeper/financial analyst. Since I just started my business, I just don't have a lot of clients yet (like 3!) lol I've been in business maybe a year. I'm really struggling with advertising. None of my attempts are working.
how big is your church? Mine here in Indiana ( Welcome to Traders Point Christian Church I recommend listening to the sermons via iTunes as the staff rocks ) has adult sports leagues. Mayhap you can find another church in your area that has adult sports leagues if yours doesn't have one or doesn't have one that fits your schedule.
Aside from that, other people have already had some good ideas.
I do belong to a networking group too, but we're not really social, and dare I say it… they're older and not used to movement lol I hesitate to ask, but we DO have a wellness coach, so maybe we can organize something unofficially…. I'll see.
I'm really getting in to this parkour / free running thing. Today on my drive to my hike, I was looking at my neighborhood and looking for low walls & fences to climb/jump. My friend that I went hiking with said he used to do free running about 10-12 years ago and would coach me some.
When I got to the trail, I was looking at the different things alongside the trail. He didn't point a single one out. But I was looking for what I could climb/jump. When we crossed a creek at one point, he took the rock path - I climbed onto the log that spanned the creek and walked along that. When we got to our normal turn-around spot, I climbed a tree…. without falling out! lol now granted, it wasn't high, and I didn't go far, but I was balancing, and above my comfort zone. I climbed into it rather than jumped into it, but… baby steps!
As we were getting back to the trailhead, he said 'I thought you were going to run & climb things today'. Smh. I thought he was going to coach me! lol Oh well. We'll see how things go. I leave to go to my parents house and handle clients there tomorrow. I'm going to take my dog for a walk and see what I can do to run & jump & play while I'm there.
Something else to consider is if there are fun kick boxing type classes or zumba or something like that that you would enjoy. It would be a good way to meet other people and there's bound to be something in your time slots that are available. My friend goes to a church that provides those activities- maybe your church does too? Just thoughts...
