46 – Senior Vice President, Commercial Lending at Financial Federal
44 – Clinical Pharmacist at Enclara Pharmacia
HOW THEY MET:
The two met at Memphis BBQ fest and have been together for nearly 19 years.
The Scoggins have two sons, Wilson, 14, and Denton, 11.
HOW THEY STAY FIT TOGETHER:
They love to go to the gym together and will make any excuse to get outside with their kids and their dog.
HOW THEY INSPIRE EACH OTHER TO STAY ACTIVE:
Gideon and Carly divide up kid duty and everyday family life so that they can each make time for their workouts. Gideon also pushes Carly to believe that she can do more than she thinks, and Carly supports Gideon through all his “crazy” trail races.
THEIR GREATEST STRENGTHS:
Gideon describes Carly as a great mom who brings laughter to any situation and makes family life fun. Carly applauds Gideon’s ability to get along with everyone and says he’s easygoing and kind to everyone he meets.
PROUDEST FITNESS ACCOMPLISHMENT:
Gideon is proud of his back-to-back buckles at Leadville Trail 100 and the many lessons he learned training for this race, while Carly is proud of pushing herself out of her comfort zone by lifting heavier weights.
BEST WELLNESS ADVICE:
Always make time to do some kind of movement once a day, whether a short walk or a 45-minute workout class. It’ll boost your mood and is good for you!
The Scoggins are excited to continue to push themselves past their minds’ limits but in a sustainable way that won’t cause burnout or injury.
