Paddle Boarding Adventures

Sometimes a familiar activity opens the door to new experiences. Paddle boarding has become familiar to me over the past number of years in Mexico. But each trip out into the Sea of Cortez seems to bring new adventure. Just last month, we stopped to snorkel and besides seeing so many beautiful fish, there were... Continue Reading →

Because I Can

“I move because I can.” I remind myself of this when I’m out for an enjoyable walk, or sweating through a not-so-enjoyable workout.

As mentioned in my last post, a love of walking has been re-awakened in me these last few weeks. Daily walks, exploring the area around us, has become a wonderful habit. I have always enjoyed going for a walk. When we used to have a dog, a daily walk - sometimes two - was a necessity.... Continue Reading →

The joy of walking

There are a lot of amazing ways to get yourself into shape. My recent experience with boxing certainly did the trick, as did a previous round of marathon running. I love swimming; lots of people enjoy cycling. There are many types of classes at an overwhelming variety of gyms. There are also many theories and... Continue Reading →
