So SRS were so 'up for it', we had to organise two teams for this here challenge. They're led by me and Anne-Marie Bird (I know, a girl - dead easy win already!). What's great about the two of us is our fantastic ability to lead a team, to set an example and to motivate our teams. That's why were' both off on holiday for the majority of May!
Team Kev, as they'll be known forever more are a motley crew of mainly coerced people who didn't really know what they were getting themselves in for. However, that's the perfect recipe. One thing this challenge isn't, is a competition of who is the fittest. That's like preaching to the converted. Instead, it's to get everyone interested in getting active and healthy and to ensure people realise that being physically active doesn't mean squatting a car or running a marathon. I think that's what puts people off sport - they don't realise that you don't have to be 'good' at it to do it. Beleive me, you should see some of the lads I play football with on a Wednesday evening. You'd think David blunket were playing Ray Charles at times!
Anyway, I digress. What's most impressed me, as a keen sportsman, is the fact that SRS were so keen they needed two teams. We have a fantastic atmosphere in our office, with (mostly) everyone being game for a laugh and willing to try something new. At the end of this month, my main aim is to have more people in our team staying active and having everyone try something new. Oh, and obliterating the opposition!
THE REST OF YOU:
Now, where are my flip flops? I'm off to Thailand. So the next blog will be a guest one from someone in my team. Probably Adam Willsmore
Oh, and by the way, what a great initiative from Sussex Sport. They do an awful lot for us as staff at the university - thanks guys. (That's the win in the bag. Everyone loves a brown nose)
