In the early morning rain...

Tuesday, May 18, 2010

Go figure - age and the weather are not mutually exclusive when it comes to exercise! I frequently walk where I live, and Katie, my next door neighbor asked me if I would be interested in walking in the mornings with her because she needed to shed a couple of pounds... Now Katie weighs all of 130, which is mostly muscle! She's almost 20 and in nursing school. But I have learned from SP that it doesn't matter what you weigh, if you want to lose weight, it can be a challenge whether you have 10# to lose or 100>

So anyway, we decided to meet at 6 AM...I get up and it's raining. I figure I am going anyway, and there is no way this 20 year old is going to be out there...but I walked out my door and there she was... in shorts :) I was freezing in two layers and she's in shorts.

I also wasn't sure just what we would 'chat' about while we walked... I'm 56!!! Well, 30 minutes flew by - we talked about her nursing program, her desire to shed 10# - and I told her about this site, her boyfriend, and her job....easy breezy conversation.

What a wonderful way to begin my the early morning rain!

    I am glad you did not go back inside. I presume that after your walk and seeing you co-walker in shorts you felt great.
