Making Time in Bethesda

Lesser known fact about The Koitz Group, besides being real estate pros, we are also all fitness freaks. I spend an average of 10-15 hrs a week working out — it provides me with an outlet for stress and an opportunity to meditate on many of the complex aspects of deals for clients. Another lesser known fact is that I am such a swift runner, that I can actually change space and time, and here’s the story behind that..

Back in 2009 I became really serious about running being a part of my health routine. I run an average of 30 miles a week and have run as many as 80 miles a week at points. In 2010 I competed in my first full marathon, and thought I’d choose an easy city…so I went with San Francisco. Simply put, when it comes to training, I keep it real.

Recently I smoked my colleagues Matt Moses and Kevin Koitz in the Parks Half Marathon running from Rockville to Bethesda on a course that winds through Rock Creek Park. But this accomplishment alone was not enough — I’m destined to do something greater.

…So this coming Sunday, November 6th, I will be running to reverse time. That’s right, I said it, I will be literally running so fast that time will move back exactly one hour during the course of my race. In a run appropriately titled the “Anything Is Possible 5k” I will be changing the spectrum of time.

The run will begin at 1:50am EST at Georgetown Square in Bethesda, and over the course of the race what everyone will see happen is their clocks will literally go back an hour. If you have seen the movie Back to the Future, it will be like a smaller version of the experiment in that film, minus the Delorean. When I have reached a cruising rate of around 10mph the whole world will travel back in time one hour!

Work hard, play hard is part of what makes every individual balanced. To stay sharp in business matters we find that our bodies must help us keep our minds sharp. Plus it helps to have the ability to turn back time too, you never know when you’ll need that (and yes, you can thank me in advance for the extra hour of sleep that night)!
