What was your least favorite subject when you were in school? My least favorite subject in school was physical education. I was not very coordinated as a child (or adult), and I dreaded the dress requirement and competitive environment. Ironically, I joined the military right after high school and had to sink or swim in boot camp and adhere to military personal training requirements every six months. After the military, I got a little lax in my workout regime and gained a significant amount of weight. I'm happy to report that I recently lost 50 pounds. While I still don't love working out, I make sure to go to CrossFit three times a week. I recently started a couch to 5K program and signed up for several local runs. My big goal is to not to come in last. I love running into former students who don't recognize me, and I look forward to keeping up with them on the playground and in the classroom.
