When I was a child, my favorite physical activity was to sit in a chair and turn the pages of the book I was reading.:-) While I enjoy several sports, it is purely as a spectator and not as a participant. So, it was a challenge when I became a Weight Watcher to find an activity that would help use up some of those calories.
Walking was the activity I chose. After a time, I began to give thought to working in some light jogging with my walking. This might not sound like such a huge deal, but I was 69 years old! I decided I would also set a goal of participating in the Race for the Cure, sponsored by Komen, that is held in our town.

Because of a conflict with a UMW responsibility, I was not able to participate in 2011. There will be the same scheduling problem this year as well.
We continue to hope for successful research in finding a cure for this dreaded disease.
I thank you for reading, and I enjoy your comments.
