As the long-awaited, and highly-anticipated fall archery fitness season is only days away from starting, we will have a glance at my 2017 summer endeavor highlights below.
I made a fantastic get-a-way trip to Kauai during July! I got into my creative mode and did a lot of Improv comedy as World Record Weber and Audrey Athletica on this trip as I produced my Kauai Adventures video below.
I awoke each day to the sounds of the ocean and roosters and became inspired to make a relaxation audio ocean poetry CD with 36 poems (the same ones in my first book I wrote called, “Wild Under the Waves” when I was sixteen). This ocean animal package is now available. Contact me if interested at Awinningway@gmail.com
When I returned back to the mainland I was in La La Land for a couple weeks still thinking and feeling like I was in Kauai. Many people were waiting upon my arrival to get back into the swing of fitness, which made me happy! I brought back the Archery Scavenger Hunt Race, which has been highly rated as at top event. This year marked the 2nd Annual event where two records were set!
2nd Annual Archery Scavenger Hunt Race
Of course, I have been very busy with intense training and record breaking. I finally broke a very tough ab record that I have been trying to re-set for 3 years!!

CENTRAL FLORIDA, June 10, 2017—Only 3 out of hundreds were selected to be on the 2017 Elite Team in barebow category archery where they train and compete in the the Elite 900 Round Invitational on June 10, 2017. The three selected were chosen for their dedication, determination, and discipline in training both mentally and physically in barebow category archery. They also had to have all won championships. Indaya, Aisha, and Siri of Alicia Weber’s Archery, Fitness, and Sports League performed above and beyond what was expected for their first ever 900 Round! They trained 6-weeks to prepare for the long, grueling event in the Florida heat.
Their event took 3.5 hours in mid-morning where they saw the sun, clouds, and some rain, but they remained on fire the whole time! They kept progressing through the rounds with more and more points and finally they all set age group league records with scores that would give veteran archers a run for their money.
Elite Team Competes and Sets Records in 900 Round
The Elite Archers competed in the Youth Barebow Category Archery 900 Round consisting of 50yds-40yds-30yds with 6 arrows a person and 5 rounds per distance (300 possible points at each distance).
Here are their results and Top Accolade that got them here:
Indaya (age 14) scored 367 pts to set the overall league record and the age 14 record in 900 Round. She is the only girl to win two championships. She won the Fall 2015 and Spring 2016 Archery Fitness Championships. She has been training for three years.
Siri (age 17) scored 320 pts in the 900 Round to set the Age 17 League Record. She has only been training 6 months and won the Spring 2017 Archery Mind Games Championship.
Aisha (age 13) scored 182 pts to set the age 13 League record in the 900 Round. She won the Fall 2016 Domino Archery Distance Shooting Championship. She is going into her second year of training.
When asked how they felt after their first 900 Round, they all exclaimed, “Unbelievable.”
They agreed that the great, positive coaching elevated them to a high level of performance today. It was a phenomenal feeling of achievement, which was both mentally and physically challenging in a unique way that is very different from other sports.
They will resume training with other athletes in a new program to challenge their skills known as Quigong Archery. If youths are interested in the upcoming program, Contact Alicia at Awinningway@gmail.com
Team Awinningway and Team Sundance combined efforts to promote health, wellness, and running in Clermont, Florida, to celebrate Global Running Day 2017 with a record twenty-nine total participants.
Within the 7 days leading up to Global Running Day (June 7), there was an indoor mile, outdoor cross country mile, an outdoor 800 meter cross country event, and a challenging outdoor 800 meter cross country event with ages 2 and up completing the distances in flying colors!
Many dedicated fitness enthusiasts came out to represent wellness in this Global Running Event Series including a top local cop, a local chef, many youth athletes from around Central Florida, a two-time Archery Fitness Champion from Alicia Weber’s Archery, Fitness, Sport League, and the reigning youth event mile record holder.
Here is Video of the Indoor Mile and Outdoor Cross Country Mile Events
The participants could walk or run and there was no pressure.
“We are here to run fast,” stated Austin and Cody as they stood on the start line anxious to bolt.
Both youth boys were victorious. The reigning youth champion, Cody age 7, captured another win in the cross country mile with his time of 7:42 (his course record is 7:18), while Austin (age 8) won the 800 meter cross country in a record time of 3:10. Cody took second place in the 800 meter with 3:54. They raced on the faster and less challenging cross country course.
Two other youth girls competed in the most challenging 800 meter cross country event where they ran half the run on an incline. They finished in 4:29 and 4:49 respectively.
Indaya, the only female two time archery fitness champion in Alicia Weber’s Archery, Fitness, Sport League, was excited to participate in the one mile cross country event.
“I want to try my best and see what kind of time I can run,”added Indaya. She was the first place female in 11:10 for the mile.
Twenty-one participants ran or walked in the indoor mile requiring them to go around the Sundance gym 28 times. The winner was a youth boy from Team Sundance who finished in 11:27 and many others followed in under 12 minutes.
Here is a Video of the 800 meter Cross Country Events
Elite athlete and Coach Alicia Weber also competed and ran a 2:26 on the less challenging 800 meter cross country course. She then ran the cross country mile in 5:29 (11 seconds off her record time from last year). Weber holds regular running and conditioning programs and can be reached at Awinningway@gmail.com
In twenty-one days I coached many athletes to their championships as I coached myself to two major championships in 2 different sports. My adrenaline pumps to the thrill of competition and the excitement of taking myself and others to a whole new level. The difference between a race or regular event and a championship is the commitment, focus, as well as a much greater level of competition. The expectation is to bring out the best in myself and those who I am training. We make an effort to do this repeatedly, which means we need to become better people and better athletes all the time. The key is building all the correct muscles, skills, and great habits of success, so that we are able to peak at the right time for championships.
The twenty-one days of 6 Championships began with my personal championship -THE USA 10K Beach Running Championship (which I won 3 times, took 3rd once, and took second…). This year I took my second consecutive second place finish for overall women (16th overall out of 1,280 men and women). I was thrilled with my performance as I never raced in such tough conditions before. There was rain, hail, and 20+ mph winds. I was also very happy that two former University of Florida Gator track/cross country athletes dominated the field. Ceal Muldoon Walker, a former UF runner from the mid-80s, finished first place woman as I was second place woman (former Gator athlete 2000-2002). It was a memorable race, which I kept thinking about for a couple days. I then had to quickly switch gears and get my high energy ready for my 2017 Archery Fitness Mind Games Championship on May 7 where 12 archer athletes qualified.
Archer Athletes Shoot For Stars in May 2017 Championships
There were only three first-time championship competitors who competed for the first time for the individual and team competition on TEAM JAG. All other competitors were returning competitors, former champs, multi-champs etc..The competition was the toughest thus far with ages 8-17 vying for titles as they not only had to master barebow category archery, but foot golf, a spelling bee, math problem solving, and mind processing challenges. They were all extremely well prepared and I knew they would wiz through this competition in tip-top form.
Since the youth already know what it is like to train and become a champion, they had to teach spectators about qualities of champions during their introduction.
“Discipline,” Sebastian of the Red Rubies called out as he went on to become the first male to win the overall individual title twice. He helped lead his team, The Red Rubies, to a second place team title.
“Hard work,” added Siri who went on to win her first championship. It was her dream to compete as an archer athlete and she enjoys training and excelling with her teammate, Two time champ, Indaya. Indaya, Siri, and the girls of the Majestic Maroons are named to the league’s first Elite Team. Majestic Maroons won the 2016 Team competition, while The Tides won the 2017 team competition.
Aisha won the 2016 Domino Archery Championship and took second in this one. Izzy of Hematites took third place. New archer, Bryton, of the JAGS took 2nd male, while former champion, Matteo, took third place male.
The Junior Varsity competitors competed in a virtual archery foot golf championship. They are still honing their skills and they work with skill sets related to their abilities as they move up the developmental pipeline. They had great success and even popped out some new league records!!
Some of the results include Team Ecclesiastes with 54 points, second place team with 47 points was Archery Kings, and third place team with 44 points was a team A R Awesome.
Some of the following records were set for the league in Barebow category archery:
1. Youngest archer in year round program (age 4).
2. First 8yr old to hit a bullseye at 35 yards on his third lesson.
3. First 9 yr old to hit target at 35 yards on 4th lesson.
All the youth reaped the results of their hard work and dedication over the past few months as all their competitions concluded on May 15th. However, I had my own personal competition still to come. The training has been going really great – hopping on my SUP surfboard and hitting some waves in 18.6mph winds and 11-12 mph winds on a lake as I led up to my ocean SUP Championship on May 20. It was predicted to be flatwater, but it turned out to be “rock n’ roll” time for our morning race in St. Petersburg, Florida. Due to high winds of 12 mph and a lot of big waves, the course was shortened to around 2 miles. I was very happy to take the win in such tough conditions!! I became overall female champion in SUP Surfboard category and finished 8 minutes ahead of 2nd place.
I finished my spring season as an elite coach and athlete on a very high note!!

TEAM AWINNINGWAY also became the 6th largest team in the world. A team from French Polynesia was first with 74 youth athletes (age 12 and under), then 4 teams from France placed second thru fifth largest teams ranging from 15 to 28 athletes.
Sixty-four countries and 280 youth athletes (age 12 and under) were represented in the 2017 World Championship. The size of the youth race grew 82 percent from last year. This is the second year for the annual world-wide event where athletes compete on a Concept 2 Indoor Rowing Machine at locations all over the world during a brief period in March.
There was only one returning youth athlete to compete in this world championship on Team Awinningway. Aisha was the first to race and she set a positive note for the rest of the team competition. She improved her time from last year by 44 seconds! The rest of the youth athletes on TEAM AWINNINGWAY were all new first-time indoor rowers. All eleven athletes are archers first and then they focus on other athletic activities to become well-rounded.
TEAM AWINNINGWAY – LARGEST US TEAM IN WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS IN 2017
The girls competed first and there were 119 total youth girls (age 12 and under) in the 1 km race.
Aisha became the 4th American and 77th in the world with her time of 5:32.7 for 1km.
Next up was Natalie who became the second fastest on the team as she placed 73rd in the world and 3rd American in a time of 5:27.9 for 1km.
We had an exciting surprise from first-time rower, Jadyn, who became the first American and 39th in the world (fastest on the team) with her time of 4:55.2. She was only 52 seconds off the world champion. She discovered her new talent for indoor rowing in this world championship!
Her sister, Jordyn, became the 9th American and 110th in the world with her time of 6:44.4 and their youngest sister, Jayla, became 12th American and 116th in world in 8:27.7. Jayla (6) was also one of the six youngest competitors in the race.
“I like being the younger one. I feel I can eventually be better than the bigger kids because I am starting younger,” exclaimed Jayla after her race.
Gretchen was the 11th American and 114th in the world with her time of 7:17.4
There were a total of 21 athletes on TEAM AWINNINGWAY (including adults). Overall, TEAM AWINNINGWAY placed in the TOP 15 largest US Teams in the entire world championship (4,862 competitors). There were over 150 teams just from the US alone (not counting teams from the other 63 countries).
CLERMONT,FL—-February 19, 2017, ten Give A Day Foundation Volunteers earned medals for their volunteer hours accumulated over the past years. GADF is now going into their sixth year of helping to keep Clermont Beautiful and Making a Difference in the community. Volunteers have many attributes and they standout at events with their blue and yellow shirts, but they will soon standout even more with their new logo. GADF volunteers are always ready to reach out and give a helping hand and 10 volunteers did an outstanding job this past year.
First and and foremost, the founder, Otis Taylor, met the highest benchmark of a volunteer by achieving the Lifetime Achievement Award after accumulating over 4,000 volunteer hours!
“This is cool and I like this achievement,” Otis Taylor exclaimed as his wife handed him the rare and well-earned award. This is the highest honor of a volunteer and something all volunteers can strive to achieve.
