Secrets of Success

Rudy Walk



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
