A Brisk Run, and the beginning of W.G. George’s 100-Up Exercise Regime!

On the road again… I just can’t wait to get on the road again…

So, on my before-last post – I was talking about doing the couch to 5k.. And here is what I discovered. I can’t do it. It was BOOOOORRRRRIIIIIIIIINNNNNNNGGGGGGGG!!!!!!!!  And exceedingly aggravating.  Now Mind you, I’m not saying it isn’t a

Sometimes it’s feast, and sometimes it’s famine.
