If my lungs are full, I fall up! So B R E A T H E ! ! ! !

I'm also watching the senior athletes, especially at races. They are consistent and use good form. They also work through surgeries and illness following doctor's orders for optimal recovery.

And if it is actually possible for the Hare to morph into a Tortoise... please, let it be me.
