I go to the gym three mornings a week. I treadmill, bike, use machines for my arms, sit ups, and stretching. I am determined to keep my body strong and healthy.
I went to San Francisco with some friends one night. We parked the car and had to walk up (truly up) two blocks. I did so and stopped at the first corner for a red light. I realized my friends were not with me. They were halfway down the block. I waited and we all began the second block. Same experience: I arrived at the light and they were far behind me. I waited and we entered the hotel we were going to.
Later, a friend who knows us all, came up to me and said, “So I hear you were the only one who could walk here easily. I guess exercise had paid off.” Clearly my friends had said something to her. It caught my attention. I had truly not struggled at all walking up those streets.
Back to the gym.
