I'm from Texas and starting this fitness journey in October, 2011.

I will keep this verse in mind as I move ahead: "I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength."

I enjoy reading and games such as sudoku, scrabble, 42, and spider solitare. I'm a fan of the Baylor U. Lady Bears.

Glad to have you visit my page.

    Mary, we made it home this afternoon after doing an all-nighter from Anchorage to Austin. It was a wonderful trip, but no cruise. We had done that ealier. We rode the Wilderness Express dome train, the Park Connex bus, and several other vehicles to travel from Anchorage to Seward to Talkeetna and onto Denali--and we did see Mt. McKinley and lots of wildlife!! I will try to post some of the pics we took.
