I live on a lake. It's summertime. All around the lake are summer cottages. There's not one public beach anywhere on the lake. But, summer cottages bring summer people. They're all over the place - walking, jogging, riding their bikes. So much energy!
It's been two months since I arrived here. Yes, my energy level has improved, but I am nowhere near the level of these summer people! I look at them as they stroll, bike, or run by my house and think - 'just wait until this time next year! I'll give you a run for your money!'
Right now I am content to take small steps. I'm exercising more than I did three months ago. My stamina is slowly building and I'm feeling pretty good.
My main goal (my prize) is to be able to march in next Spring's Memorial Day parade. It just happens to be all uphill!
Slow and steady. I'll get there!
