A Why We Tri Production:

Episode 04:

Has anyone ever influenced you to get up and get after that goal you keep putting off?

Are you influencing others to go after their goals?

Tonight’s Episode Chef Dimitiris Harvalis of Fit By Elia and Elia’s @Pinecrest reveals his Grandmother’s Authentic Greek Cooking inspired him to make a change after 20 years in the rigorous Night Club hospitality industry towards creating healthy gourmet cuisine in his restaurant(s) and catering companies. Inspiration struck Chef Dimitris again during his desire to maintain a healthy lifestyle and running in local Miami Marathon events. A good friend of his inspired him to go after not just one sport but 3 sports: Swim, Bike, Run in Triathlon!

Like the pairing of a good wine and a delicious dish; Chef Dimitris shares how the positive support from his wife, Patricia, their 3 active daughters, along side teammates and triathlon training direction from Coach Andy Clark of The Miami Tri Club and Alien Endurance Race Team, he has found healthy adventures of a lifetime.

SPECIAL THANKS: Chef Dimitris – during the first 3 months of Covid Quarantine here in Miami, Florida, he stepped up to the plate in a major way by contributing preparation of his healthy and nutritious meals at a discounted rate for the #miles4mealschallenge I created back in April. Thanks to Chef Dimitris we were able to deliver over 1,400 meals to our local Healthcare and Frontline Heroes. It was a complete honor to work along side Chef Dimitris and our many other teammates during what has been a historically unprecedented time. Watching so many come together for others, while maintaining social distance AND surpassing fitness goals, truly revived my sense of purpose while on this precious journey called life!
