On Monday, our Forum had its one-day summer retreat at the New Jersey shore. One of our activities was a 12-mile bike ride.
Exercise (or lack of it) is one of my weaknesses in life. If I had set out on a bike ride independently, I suspect I would have made it 2 miles. But this time, I was with my group of friends, all about my age, and I was determined to keep up. When we got off the bikes, my body was like jelly.
The experience was a wake-up call for me. My friends were a little sweaty but okay; I could hardly walk on Tuesday morning. This time, the power of the Forum made me acknowledge my weakness (there was nowhere to hide), and now I am making a plan to work on it.
I will keep you all posted on my progress !! Thanks for listening.
