Taking the First Step! Part.1

(In this photo: Kenrick Escalanti, Bryant Mc Neely, Linda and Erica Benk, and Mark Escalanti)

As life always works, as soon as I make the commitment to start living and eating a better life, help comes calling. My mawii (Cousin) Mark Escalanti hits me up with a text that reads, “How’s the knee u ready for a 5K yet”

Of course I replied NO, but after realizing that I made a life commitment to living and eating better I decided to do it. What my mawii got me into was the Inaugural Rojas & Clark 5K Memorial Fun Run and Walk. Man was not ready for this!! But as soon as I put on my earbuds and selected my Earth Lessons from Kwatsan Radio’s very own DJ Sqeme!!! I was good to go.

Three miles later and I can now say I have made the first step to living and eating better and I owe it to my mawii Mark “Marky” Escalanti for giving me the push I needed. Now I am ready to make my steps into strides!

By the way I have no worries saying that I wasn’t First and I wasn’t Last!!

Here’s another great example of a fellow Kwatsan Native taking her steps to living better. Enjoy this Clip of EDA’s own Allyson Collins working it out!!
