Staying in shape is a good thing. But eating ain’t bad, either.
Local fitness instructor Laura Kelly is trying to incorporate both in her current personal fitness program.
Wanting to do something different as she approaches her 50th birthday, Kelly decided the best way was to combine two of her favorite things: exercise and eating out.
To that end, Kelly invented the Pork & Burn.
“It’s almost like a yin-yang thing,” she said.
Kelly, who teaches several different classes at the Family YMCA of Los Alamos, including spin and pilates, has set fitness goals for herself for each of the past four years.
This year might be her most ambitious goal yet, however.
Not only does Kelly want to participate in 50 races over the next 12 months, she also wants to sample the cuisine at 50 new restaurants.
Her 50 races kicked off with the YMCA’s annual running event, the Firecracker 5K, which was held on Independence Day. From there, she plans to run in Albuquerque, Santa Fe and even this week was on her way to take part in the San Francisco 5K Fun Run.
Additionally, she’ll take part in all of the local events, including the Enchanted Circle bike race in September and the Los Alamos Triathlon next month.
