I had another good workout on the Nordic Track.

I'm still catching up on getting my runs posted. I'm glad I'm better with the exercise than with getting my runs posted to the Blog!!

I went to a conference on spirituality and health and Gertrude the world's oldest person was quoted. When Gertrude was asked, why have you lived so long she said, "God, ask him, I took care of myself the way he wanted me to". Gertrude at 114 sounds like a very wise woman. Got exercise?
