Ladies and gentlemen, it is May and it is time to start your engines! Indianapolis residents know that May brings the excitement of the Indianapolis 500 race and festival. The famous race has grown beyond the event to include the 500 Festival Mini-Marathon. Crestwood North is joining the fun of the Indianapolis 500 excitement by sponsoring a Charity Walk for Habitat for Humanity. This is not just any walk; it is a walk with a purpose. Whether you are a race fan or not, May is the perfect time to pull up to the starting line of your choice and prepare for an exciting new ride. 

The month of May symbolizes renewal, rebirth and a fresh start. In May, students and their families celebrate graduations, the rite of passage marking the end of one era and the beginning of another. Poet Thomas Hood said of May, “Tis like the birthday of the world.” Just like a birthday is the beginning of a new year, May gives each of us the opportunity to turn over a new leaf, refresh and renew. May is not a month for excuses, but a month of anticipation and new beginnings. See you at the starting line!



This month we are on the road to Illinois. The world’s first Skyscraper was built in Chicago, 1885. Peoria is the oldest community in Illinois. Des Plaines is home to the first McDonald’s. The world’s largest cookie and cracker factory, where Nabisco made 16 billion Oreo cookies in 1995, is located in Chicago. The first animal purchased for the Lincoln Park Zoo was a bear cub, bought for $10 on June 1st, 1874. Illinois was the first state to ratify the 13th Amendment to the Constitution abolishing slavery in 1865. The first Aquarium opened in Chicago in 1893.

Chair biking is surprisingly challenging. One minute of high-intensity chair biking offers many health benefits. When adding biking into your regular exercise routine, people may gain endurance and even lower their blood pressure or blood sugar. 

A study in the New York Times, from 2014, studied 14 overweight and sedentary men and women who said lack of time was their reason for not exercising. The subjects biked one minute three times a week. They even did some stretching and simple movements for 30 minutes a week. After six weeks, their endurance, blood pressure, weight, and blood sugar levels have improved by an average of 12%. Outdoor biking has an added benefit of being environmentally friendly, and also mood-elevating. 

To bike indoors, sit in a chair with arms and lean back. Rest your head on the back of the chair. Scoot your hips and buttocks towards the front of the chair. Place your arms on the arms of the chair or on the seat if you do not have arms. Lift your feet an inch or two off of the floor and begin pedaling as if you’re riding a bike. This is also a great abdominal workout as well.
