I'm not quitting this time

I've had enough of starting an not finishing. Watching others participate, existing instead of living. I want to be fit so I can do the things I love - gardening, playing with (future) grandkids, sports - without having to stop and rest all the time.

Current Status:
CBRINKLEY401 is back from another walk. Rained on me for the last 1.5 miles but I brought an umbrella so didn't get soaked.

Soaked pretty much head to toe! But I did get my run done. The jacket worked pretty well, but it drove me crazy running with the hood up so I just left it down. Glad you had your umbrella!
