“Exercise is the chief source of improvement in our faculties” ~ Hugh Blair
After the holidays we all begin the traditional regiments of walking, jogging, exercising, and yes, the dreaded diet. During the holidays large stores tempted us with sweets and fattening foods as we walked in the doors. Now we are greeted with diet foods. And if you look around, towards the middle of the stores, you will see the Valentine's candy is already out and will soon be pushed to the front to tempt us. But we just bought all that diet food. Ah, the power of corporate marketing.
So get up and get out, like this guy, and get ready for spring. Sounds strange to be talking about spring, but as Stephen King wrote in his book My Pretty Pony, "Time ain't got nothing to do with how fast you can count." The book is about the nature of time: how when you grow up, it begins to move faster and faster, slipping away from you in great chunks.
Oh, and the flat terrain in Crisfield is a great place to get in a little jogging time.
