Personal fitness story to be shared Sunday

While re-inventing herself through exercise and running, Lori Yokiel dropped 60 pounds, 40 inches and 15 percent body fat. In that time she’s accomplished six half-marathons, numerous 5 Ks and is excited to announce she has now achieved sponsorship through Marathon Bar 2011 Athlete Team sponsorship program.

With this sponsorship from Marathon Bar, Lori wishes to spread and share her success, leading others to exercise and running as a path to a healthier and happier life.

Now you can hear her entire story, as this single mother of two shares her experience, strength and hope Sunday at 2 p.m. the Rochester Athletic Club.

She’ll share how a healthy and fit lifestyle can open up endless possibilities for you, as it did for her. For Yokiel, learning to live differently means incorporating a positive way of life, building a strong support network and giving back what was so freely given to her through the trainers that have worked with her. "Do the footwork and follow the suggestions," she says. T"he rest will all fall into place."

Marathon bar samples will be provided to the entire audience at Sunday's talk.
