Tucson By Choice!

Getting Outside and Walking at Oh Dark Thirty

It's hard to get outside walking at 5:00 in the morning.I took the photo just to prove to myself that it is possible to roll out of bed at 5:00 in the morning and get walking.  I need to keep doing that, and blogging about it will keep my focused.

Just now, my phone rang.  My younger brother back east told me that he's getting out of the house at 5:00 and in the gym by 5:30, and he's working on losing 20 pounds.

Hmm!  Sibling rivalry.  I could stand to drop more than that!  I'm on it.
