Rudy Walk


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

My Mom (67) and I (48) walk every morning with my Australian Shepherd Rudy @ 4:30am for one hour. Everyone thinks we are crazy and maybe we are BUT this is the only time I am able to get exercise in before getting the kids to school and working full time. Plus since we started doing this 4yrs ago both my physical and mental status has improved so much. The best part is being able to relieve all my stressful events to my mom knowing it is going no where... emoticon

    It is good to walk early in the morning, and it so good that you and your mom can converse while walking. Just don't mind what any body say, thanks for sharing.

    A friend and I have been doing the same for a long time. It certainly helps every aspect of my life. I love rising before the world is up and moving.
