    I have found myself reading food packages more so as of late. Rowuk made some comments concerning the effect of salt water on the chops when swimming and I have carried it over to sunblock lip balm, which is needed here in Southern California. I was chatting with a physical trainer about weight loss, running , and some diet choices. Her comment was brilliant, " If this is something you can do as a long term change in life style and it brings you the results you want, go for it" kind of like Robin's comment about structure.

    I see people running with baby carriages and kids on bikes or zip wheels on the trail all the time, during my morning bike commute, kind of annoying, but admirable none-the-less.

    yeah, I have a hard enough time walking --- so I admire those who can "overcome" the obstacles and keep running

    When I cycle to work in the finer weather I sometimes think I'm going along at a good clip, but then am disabused of this when riders looking half my age ride effortlessly by me (usually in the vicinity of the city's institute of sport). Okay, they're probably on bikes which weigh less than a coat-hanger with razor-thin tyres, and don't look as though they're embarrassed by lycra, but it does make me question my fitness level, or current potential.

    Which reminds me: A middle-aged runner stops to rest, bent over, red-faced, heaving and coughing, and tells some concerned bystanders he is running to recover his lost youth. A short while later a teenage boy appears, telling his dad he can stop chasing him now.
