Greetings Amazing Racers! Your DETOUR is here. This week there is an opportunity to take our first DETOUR. I thought since we were in the Land of Lincoln that it would be fitting to incorporate something with his image…..something very familiar to us all….the US penny. Take a look at the two pictures of my penny jar. Can you guess how many pennies there are? Have your team Captain email me your answer or post your guess here.
Each team has just one guess. The team that guesses closest, without going over wins the extra 100,000 points. There can be more than one winner. You have until COB (1600 hours) on Wednesday the 26th to wager your guess.

Graduation is over and summer is here, it’s also locker room cleanout/maintenance time. This year we need all locker holders to clean out their lockers by close of business 19 Jun. We will use 20-21 for locker cleanout and maintenance. Fumigation will take place over the weekend of 23 & 24 June. You will have access to your locker on 25 Jun. During this time you will have access to the locker room, showers and gym facility. This will give us a chance to clean and fix any problems in the locker room. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

Here it is......your last drop box. Too bad you didn't have this one sent earlier on the AT because you sure could have used these 'hand sanitizer wipes' earlier. Oh well.....lessons learned for the next time! Can you guess how many of me there are? Post your guess by the COB this Friday. The team that guesses closest, without going over wins 20,000 extra points and bragging rights!

Whew.....all this walking has made you hungry and in need of some fuel. Thank goodness drop box #2 contains a source of quick, portable energy --Virginia jumbo peanuts in the shell. How appropriate too, since we are trekking along Virginia right now! Can you guess how many peanuts there are? Have your Team Captain post a guess. The closest guess without going over wins 20,000 extra points. There can be more than one winner. Guess deadline: COB this Friday. Good luck!

Blood drive today to support the Armed Services Blood Program. Stop by ES, room 107 from 0900-1300. Walk-ins are welcome!!

What if there was a compact, inexpensive device that would motivate you to walk an extra mile each day? Would you use it, especially if doing so required little effort?

There is and you should try it! Researchers report that individuals who wear pedometers get more exercise, lose weight, and lower their blood pressure more than people who do not. On average, pedometer users increase their physical activity by about 2,000 steps daily.

That’s why we’re launching the NDU on the Move Challenge. This fun and fast-paced 10-week campaign challenges teams to compete against one another to log daily steps and race to the finish. It’s a great way to ramp up your physical activity with the support of team members and the competitive spirit provided by other teams.

Teams made up of 5 members race virtually from NDU around the entire Capital Beltway. The first team around the Beltway and the team with the most trips around the Beltway wins! Each team has to have each member cross the finish line at least once by walking the 64 miles or 128,000 steps in 10 weeks. To make it challenging, we’ll be counting your average weekly steps. While we encourage all types of physical activity only walking, running, and biking will count toward the mileage total in this challenge.

The NDU on the Move Challenge begins September 1st. Come by and register your team on the 24th of August - we’ll have a table set up outside of Health Fitness from 1030-1300. To register, we’ll need to know the name of your team captain, your team members, and what you’ll call your team. Super easy! To register a team or for more information, please contact Nancy Gouveia at [email protected].

Good luck and good health!

Sometimes the toughest scars are those you don't see........always try and be a friend!!

On Veterans Day, remember that some of the toughest battles for soldiers take place after they’ve returned home. See how for one soldier, a total stranger not only changed his life - she saved it.
