Dacula Patch: What is something Dacula residents need to know?
Mayor Wilbanks: Here is Wired’s next tip from their article on Health: Tip 2 -Shorten Your Workouts. Wow, that must mean my workouts are the best. So short you can’t even know when they are over! Wired authors say that high-intensity interval training workouts are more effective than more tradition workout models. Most recreational athletes are better off running fewer laps but focusing on more intense efforts. Do you think for the average Joe or Jane that shorter, more intense workouts are better than a more traditional exercise regime?
Dacula Patch: Where is your favorite place to relax and unwind in Dacula?
Mayor Wilbanks: My favorite place to relax is my home on Dacula Road. I guess it’s because I’m not there very much. But it is a place of never-ending change. You wouldn’t think it could be very relaxing because of all the activity in the area. You can see wildlife of all kinds in my yard even though sometimes it’s the kids from the Middle School or the High School or from the park. Something is always going on, and if I get tired of just hanging, I get to watch the antics of squirrels, the wandering of a wild turkey, the honking of a flock of geese landing to snack on the lawn, or the interesting folks that pass by on Dacula Road, or walking in the park, or students getting out of school.
