One of TeamWILD’s favorite Type 3s (one who supports a person with diabetes but doesn’t live with it him or herself) is Kevin Masten of Bright Hive. Here, he shares with us some of his exercise motivators.
1. I exercise because it’s the perfect counterpoint to the amount of time I spend inside working behind a computer. Running is a great break from technology (although I do sometimes listen to music). It engages my mind in a different way and when I do come back to work I find myself both physically and mentally energized.
2. Exercise is great for my dog. Labrador retrievers are notorious for becoming lazy as they get older. My lab is fit, at a healthy weight and has the energy level of a dog that’s younger than he really is. That makes both of us happy!
3. Exercise is a good financial investment. I pay for my own health insurance. Staying healthy will help keep my premiums as low as possible.
4. I’m inspired by TeamWILD athletes!
