Congratulations Hayley!

Hayley has become the first Creatively Fit teammate to reach her 50th walk! See all of Hayley's walks here.

Creatively Fit has been around for 50 days! This means that Hayley has not missed one day of walking, which makes this an extra special accomplishment!

Hayley has walked rain or shine, sunrise and sunset, with and without her three children, and in sickness and in healthy. Now that's commitment!

Congratulations Hayley! You are a shining example to all of your teammates, here at Creatively Fit! You show commitment, dedication, motivation and enthusiasm! You are also a wonderful support to all of your teammates, by always encouraging other with your thoughtful comments.

You encourage us all to meet the goal of our first 50 walks and to keep walking to 100 and beyond!

I was wondering if you would mind answering a few questions, in honor of your 50 walk accomplishment? Kind of like a celebrity interview:) All you have to do is fill in the answers to the following questions.

1. Do you have a favorite walk? Why is it your favorite? If so, could you post a link to it here so we can see your fabulous photos?

2. Do you have a favorite photo or collage from your first 50 walks? Post the photo or collage here.

3. Do you have a photography tip for us?

4. What have you learned about your own creativity? Do you feel you have grown creatively? If yes, how so?

5.What was your fitness routine before Creatively Fit?

6. Have you seen a change in yourself physically? More energy, increased stamina, weight loss...?

7. Fitness is not just about the physical. Have you seen a change in yourself mentally, emotionally or spiritually? Of course, if any of these questions seem too personal, you don't have to answer.

8. Do you have a fitness tip for us?

9. How do you keep yourself motivated to get out there everyday?

10. Any other words of wisdom about being creatively fit?

Thank you for sharing the past 50 days with us. We look forward to the next 50! It has been a treat!

To all of our teammates: You can earn a day in the spotlight and a 50 walk gold medal too! Just keep walking, clicking and connecting!

Have a great walk today!
