I am a jogger, not a runner. Yes, to me there is a huge difference. Some can easily dash out a mile or more, but for me even when I am in condition, it is a challenge. Yet, when there is something to make it enjoyable… or worth it, my challenge becomes secondary.

On February 8th, several of us Bailey Group associates are going to participate in the CHARACTER COUNTS! 3K/6K.

St. Johns County is an Awesome Place to Live

We are privileged to have the number one school district in the state. I moved here for the schools, and most of my associates were either raised here, or choose to raise their children here, because of the schools.

What we seek is what we need to support. I am fortunate to work with people who are trustworthy, respectful, responsible, fair, caring and demonstrate excellent citizenship. These six pillars of character are character traits The Bailey Group seeks for our clients. Within our schools, there is an initiative that builds these six pillars of character in our students; it’s called CHARACTER COUNTS! The St. Johns County School District, along with local businesses and civic groups, selected this nationally-supported character educational program, CHARACTER COUNTS!, as a county-wide mission to impart positive character traits in our young people.

Join Me, My Associates, and Many Other Walkers, Runners… and Joggers
