My new exercise buddy. JW is my little brother, oh yeah we are 55 years apart, so it is a little weird. I just met him through the Big Brothers/ Big Sisters Association. We have been hiking biking, climbing etc over the past month or so.
One of my strategies to stay fit is not to exercise in a vacuum or on one piece of equipment, but rather to incorporate old and new friends into the practice. Biggies was a natural, I have always like working with kids in my career and as a dad-uncle etc.
I have 4 walking partners now JW, my other same age as me buddy (who is severely depress and reluctant), an ex-boss who just retired also, and my wife.
I got my "little bro" to try rock climbing at a local rock gym this week. Great to expose kids to new adventures. The woman in the photo below is Joanie who owns the gym and taught me to climb 12 years ago. She let us climb for free and gave us a free lesson.
