If you could participate in any race, competition, or health and fitness related event what would it be?
Sam Fong, Fitness Director, LifeStart at Boar's Head
I despise running, so participating in a full marathon is a big goal of mine. Also, to do a handstand, but that doesn't seem like a big one
Michelle Williams, LifeStart General Manager, Kemper Lakes Fitness Center
I would love to compete in bikini bodybuilding show just to challenge myself. It would force me not to eat ice cream...my biggest weakness.
Cara Simpson, LifeStart General Manager, Club Samsung
Full Ironman! But first, I should probably try a full marathon

They say that one of the ultimate fitness tests is to be able to row 2000 meters in 7 minutes. I'd like to do that before my 31st birthday (September 7th)!
Linda Mueller, LifeStart General Manager, 125 S. Wacker Dr.
Any competition? Gosh. Winning an LPGA tournament...Being on the women's Olympic soccer team. Killing the Ironman in Kona. All fantasies.

I would love to someday run an ultramarathon which is 50 miles. I don't have a specific one in mind, but it's something I've always wanted to try.
Randi Karlinsky, LifeStart Registered Dietitian Nutritionist
I have always wanted to run a marathon. I was never a big runner growing up, so I really never thought it was something I could actually accomplish. That was until this year when I decided to go for it and sign up for the 2017 Chicago Marathon!
