My name is Julie Phan and I am a senior in Exercise Sports & Science (EXSS) under the option of Fitness and Nutrition. I have been teaching dance choreography for over four years and am now teaching Body Pump at Dixon Recreation Center for this upcoming fall term. This is my first time blogging about any experience that I have done and my first 5K to participate in and I am super excited to do it! I am certainly not a runner so when I say I am going to train this it is going to be hard for me. My goal is to finish the run under 30 minutes.
What I have planned for myself for the next couple of weeks is to time my miles and compare them as I shorten the miles at least 15-30 seconds shorter from the start of my first mile. This will be a great opportunity for those who would like to explore the campus and make new friends! Come and have fun in your workout clothes, costumes are encouraged, and show your beaver pride in ORANGE AND BLACK!
Live well, learn well, BE WELL,

Back into the hustle and bustle of a busy fall term and finding yourself in need of a snack that can keep you going during the day. You prepare yourself for the week by cracking the books; consider food preparation as well to set yourself up for a healthy, successful week. Try preparing a few oranges in individual containers for a quick snack in your busy day. Add a handful of almonds to this afternoon snack and you’ll have enough “filling power” to get you through whatever the afternoon throws your way!
