Recently, I celebrated a milestone birthday which made me make some more
conscious health resolutions. Completing my second Gate River Run was one of these resolutions. And, although I did not beat my time from 2016, I did complete the race within mere minutes of my previous time. Ya me!
Other resolutions I have made involve eating healthier (a no brainer for all of us!) and taking better care of my skin. As a lifelong coastal resident (both left and right, or right and wrong coasts depending on your view!), I have been guilty of deeply bronzing my skin. I was a St. Johns County Lifeguard in the late 1980s before spray tans existed.
Now, I am motivated to take better care of my skin including removing dark spots and wearing sunscreen – something I have never been very good at doing! I urge the both the young and old to protect their skin and inspect suspicious spots or moles. Melanoma is a serious cancer that can both be prevented and halted.
