Peter Kofman wins with 10 other finalist at WellnessChampions.ca.



Thank you all for the congrats on the win at the Wellness Champions competition yesterday. Incredibly I was nominated by a bike racer colleague . I was not the only winner.10 people from all walks of business and athletic life were awarded for their commitment to health  and wellness. Check the other nominees at
www.wellness champions.ca . Honestly, I was very hesitant to participate when initially nominated. I could not see myself being put on a podium for doing things that just come naturally.Somehow yesterday I managed to become a winner. . So If I did it and if  something came of my participation then it had to be about the team and our chosen kids cancer charity OOCH , not me specifically.

I cant remember the last time , if ever I took a day, to spend on the intellectual side of health , fitness and well being,
My idea of well being usually has something to do with staring at the back of someones wheel going 45 kph! with my lungs exploding and legs on fire! .But yesterday was different and I enjoyed the learning experience.

So in conclusion I want to share a few final thoughts about my inclusion in this contest.

Number one: I participated because  want to use this recognition  as a way to promote what our Erace Cancer Cycling Team & Foundation does for Camp Oochigeas . We started this team to race bike and raise money for kids who are sick. So donations are welcome on our team page at www.ooch.org.
THIS ALONE WAS MOTIVATION FOR PARTICIPATION AND IM GLAD I DID IT.

So if I can inspire someone else to live a particular way by example , then why not.
I did not realize it at first but what we do is viewed as the exception , not the norm
and many people strive for some form of commitment that many in our bike  community take for granted.

A final thought.

1 After my initial trepidation about participating  I came to realize that many people simply want to understand how to achieve goals, particularly with respect to Fitness and Weight management..and look to others for help so that they can learn by example.
2 There were 4 key themes  that kept coming up yesterday Sleep Sleep Sleep , Eat properly , Exercise, Move...Pretty simple . Just do it !
