FORT WAYNE, IN (Indiana's NewsCenter) - In 5 and a half months, Fort Wayne will host the first annual Fort 4 Fitness Half Marathon and 4 mile
Walk/Run. Our goal at Indiana's NewsCenter to get as many of you training now, so you can cross the finish line in September.

This morning we find our trainer, Dr. Jamey Gordon live at Parkview North's Outpatient Services Center. He says starting any new exercise routine starts with a quick check up, and now is a great time to get that done. Jamey is also explains a Chem 17 blood test and introduces us to members of our training group and explains some the challenges they are facing.

Dr. Gordon stresses the importance of starting early, doing things right and always being healthy in order to achieve success.
