Saving the best Run of 2019 for last.
On Saturday, December 14th, The Spirit of Giving Run takes place once again. This event is by far one of the most festive and fun runs for runners and walkers alike. It’s a 5K run or walk with a street like festival in our beautiful downtown City of Modesto. The run features a separate start line, with The Quake Mobile DJ to help you get your Holiday Christmas run on, only to have a just as exciting finish line near Brenden Theaters. Holiday Christmas Cheer will be greeting you as you shoot down to the finish line with loads of snow falling from the sky, thanks to our Modesto View Magazine. Soon after your run is done, the children will also be able to get into the healthy Holiday family fun with the free kids fun run.

Kids! We need all of you to help us chase that Christmas stealing Grinch out of Modesto. He’s up to his old tricks again and word on the street is that he’s been seen training hard at Planet Fitness to get even faster. As you know Planet Fitness welcomes everyone including The Grinch. So in order to help us save Christmas my friends at Planet Fitness are offering you this special promotion to join our healthy lifestyle so that you too are ready for The Spirit of Giving Run. Starting December 1st, Planet Fitness will waive your enrollment fee for new members who show their race BIB from The Spirit of Giving Run or just mention The Spirit of Giving Run and get the same deal. WOW!

The Spirit of Giving Run also features a canned food drive that will benefit our friends at the Gospel Mission. Please bring lots of canned food items to the Event or consider making a monetary donation and get a raffle ticket (up to 10 tickets) for a chance to win the Mystery Prize. Let’s talk conditioning. Your fitness Quake DJ recommends for all runners to get themselves acclimated prior to your run/walk. Since it takes place on December 14th you can bet the chill will be in the air. Try getting a few runs/walks outside in the early morning prior to your Sprit of Giving Run. This will help you acclimate yourself by running in the cold Christmas type weather. For more information on The Spirit of Giving Run; log onto and remember to like them on Facebook.

Hey friends, your DJ in Fitness, The Quake Mobile DJ and his wife wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

About the Author:

I answered the call back in 1983; mixing Music and Entertainment with an eccentric European style has always come easy for me. In the early 80's I was the Disc Jockey for most of the high school dances in Modesto. In the late 80's I found myself in Hollywood working as a dancer and sound engineer for various professional recording industries. In 1990 my wife of 25 years and I started (The Quake Mobile DJ ®) which was seeded from San Francisco's 1985, The Quake, radio station that only lasted a short while on the air. 26 years later The Quake Mobile DJ is bigger & better than ever in the Entertainment industry. Real-Estate, photojournalism, event promoter, saving animals, travel and fitness are a few other of my interests. I also enjoy motivational speaking to children and to those who are struggling with addiction. In my life, I have always been a very direct person and once I see a goal I won't quit till I've achieved it. But out of all of the above I feel in my heart that the best inspiration in my life is my wife and my love for the faith that I practice. Phil 4:20
