Bar Bulletin question: How staying active impacts my life


"In the past, I had been active on and off. Recently, I made a commitment to get back into shape and be active on a regular basis. I began training for a 5K and then finally made it through the Gate River Run. In the last couple of months or so, I started doing cross-training, which has really helped build by strength and confidence. Staying active is a healthy way to maintain my competitive drive and it also helps me maintain my focus and energy. My current goal is to complete my first half-marathon this December. Wish me luck."

Jessica Mathis, Wicker Smith O’Hara McCoy & Ford P.A.


"The legal profession can be very sedentary, so I make a conscious effort to stay very active. I especially enjoy staying active with my wife. She and I go on bike rides together around town and I find that when you stay active with your partner, it is much more fulfilling. Soccer is my favorite way of staying active and I make it a priority to play twice a week. It is so important to maintain an active lifestyle and I encourage everyone to try something new and incorporate a little movement into their daily routine. It truly makes a difference."

Sal Palmeri, Bataineh Palmeri, LLP


"I stay active by coaching indoor volleyball and playing beach volleyball. Coaching allows me to continue participating in the sport I love. Beach volleyball lets me spend time with my husband and we only have to find two more people to get a game going. I try to play as many competitive beach volleyball tournaments as possible, which keeps me motivated to

head to the gym in between."

Samantha Berdecia, Alexander DeGance Barnett


"Within the past year, I started running in local races around town. Most recently, I ran in the Pumpkin Run at the Evergreen Cemetery and plan to run the 2016 River Run. Although I’ve never considered myself an avid runner, participating in these races has been a great way to get outdoors, see different parts of Jacksonville and relieve stress, all at the same time."
