WDAS FM Personality Mimi Trains for 5K Run with Listeners
Mimi wants you to join her.
Anyone who knows Mimi Brown knows that she brings us the music that’s good for our soul. Her triumphant spirit and passion for life inspire us to shake off the blues to enjoy life.
Tune into WDAS-FM 105.3 in the coming weeks, and you may hear her call upon her listeners to join her in another life-affirming journey: fitness.
“It’s not about what you look like; it’s about what we are going to accomplish together. If we are the last ones to cross that finish line, I’m going to be holding your hand.”
Fitness is something that many of us struggle with at one point or another in our lives. And Mimi’s no different. After a childhood of balanced eating and regular exercise, she fell into a rut after college. The pressures of a fast-moving career made it more difficult to get back into a healthy groove. She began to put on the pounds until she didn’t recognize herself.
“It happens so slowly; you just start to get bigger and bigger…I looked in the mirror and asked myself, ‘Who is this?’”
Wanting to make a change, Mimi decided to join a gym, but she just couldn’t stick to it. “I only went twice,” she said. Mimi realized it wasn’t how much she spent, but what was going to make getting fit something she could commit to was realizing that she wasn’t doing for anyone else, but herself.
“It was all for the purpose of a healthier me.”
