This blog is for and about the Webster family. Each of us want to make choices every day that will result in optimal health and fitness. We represent different generations and different places in life - from empty-nesters to young families to students. Our health goals are as varied as we are, but we want to have a common place to post our progress and our challenges. We will be accountable to each other - to provide support, design incentives, share information we come across, and in general cheer each other on and celebrate our steps toward fitness! If anyone happens upon this blog and is inspired to be more fit and healthy that is icing on the cake. So here we go!

Kathy - Tromping Update

The last few days have been warm and wet so we have forsaken the much-too-muddy hill. Once in a while we head to the lake but mostly we have just been moving on down the road.  Tonight was no exception.  Fortunately the torrential downpour cleared enough for us to go.  Cleared, however, is a relative term.  The rain stopped but in its place was a dense fog.  The world was reduced to the pool of light created by our headlamps.  These conditions rendered our 90-lb black beast nearly invisible.  Normally she is off sniffing and exploring but she too enjoyed the light from our headlamps tonight and stayed close. This made conditions a bit hazardous as at any moment a shadow could materialize right where we were about to step.  As we were walking along straining to see and trying not to trip over the beast a pack of coyotes began yelping 5 feet away from us!.  The Fearless Leader assured me that they were probably on a hillside across the field from us, but it still made my skin crawl.  We finally made it through the sea of fog to the island of light that was our front porch light  - Gotta love these tromps!

Anyway!  Hope you are all feeling more energetic and fit...Keep exercising!  Keep eating healthy!  You and your body are worth it!
