"Accept the challenges so that you can feel the exhilaration of victory."

General George S. Patton

............................

This Veteran's Day a bit of wisdom from my favorite General, warts and all. He was a brilliant warrior and strategist. How he'd dislike living in our politically correct world now!! Oh my! But.....this quote of his is also a great mantra for our SP journey. We DO have to accept each and every one of our challenges and they come to us daily. I've come to agree that there really is NOTHING that tastes so good as being healthy & fit feels. Gimme veges, fruit & whole grains every time!! Then a good 8 mile hike in the hills.

Had a real good day, although the afternoon was a little rainy. It's supposed to get pretty cold tonight with a predicted 'mix'.....I so hope ice isn't a part of that 'mix'. Ice makes living on top of this huge hill pure treachery - sometimes it's a bobsled run - fit only for walking. People slide off into the ravine in the winter, totaling their cars. We park our 4 WD Subaru and my bus at the bottom of the hill and just walk up and down it. No driving it for days when there's ice. Here's hoping it won't be too bad.

Mileage: 9.48 miles
ST: core; lower body

Hope your Veteran's Day Monday was super!! emoticon emoticon

If there are any Veteran's reading this.....thank you for your selfless service to our Country and for preserving our freedoms. I can't thank you enough. God bless you.
