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 - Into the teeth of the storm

Yes, teeth, as in biting, and cold.  Yesterday might have turned into a companionable tromp, today was a death march.  The beast and I turned our noses into the wind (at least the beast did - I bent my head to keep the snow out of my eyes and to watch for badger holes) and braved the elements.  The snow crusted on our heads but we marched on.  The wind tried to tear us from the hill, but we marched on (okay, so the beast also did a bit of gallomping and snuffling). We marched and we conquered.  As we were taking our victory lap across the stubble field the sun came out for a brief shining moment to crown our efforts, then retreated behind the dark menacing clouds as if trying to tell us to get inside out of the cold. We took the hint.

March of death:  45 minutes.  KB workout:  15 minutes.  One hour total.
