The Challenge

The Citizen is taking on the challenge!

Now, in past years we have taken on any number of challenges, from Bellevue Council to the Kilbuck Police Department. This challenge, however, promises to be the most grueling to-date.

We're going to get healthy.

Allegheny General Hospital - Suburban Campus has developed a new community wellness program called The 20 Week Challenge. We're going to learn about diet, exercise, relaxation and any number of other factors that need to be addressed in our unhealthy lifestyles.

Joining me over the next five months will be reporter John Doane and advertising rep/sportswriter Jim Rumble, both of whom are far healthier than I am. They are both runners. Me, you have to pry me out of my house with a crowbar once cold weather sets in. Hopefully this team atmosphere will keep us all going during the program.

We'll keep you posted on our progress!
