In the Spotlight: Genentech

marciacoyneambFavorite fitness activity: Walking.   I also enjoy rowing and am seeing the benefits of upper body conditioning. I'm trying a few new sports, like Stand Up Paddeboarding and Orange Theory,  to see what types of activities I enjoy.  ​ ​I've been tracking my steps for over three years now​, making sure to average at least 10,000 steps per day.I just finished my first half-marathon—with no pain and I'm ready to do another! 

What’s the biggest obstacle to moving more? Time is the biggest obstacle, however making movement a priority has helped.  Since last November, I've lost almost 50 pounds and over 35 inches (from the neck, arms, chest, waist, hips, thighs and calves).  I've gotten healthier. (No more blood pressure medications!), and I’ve gotten a whole new wardrobe to keep me moving!

What's the most rewarding part of participating in the Genentech 500,000-Mile Challenge? The company-wide challenge wasn't part of the picture for me, but I like seeing who else is participating and it adds a bit of accountability, but I really needed to step up and do this for myself.​

Best advice: Keep moving! Every little bit helps.
