Tessy offered me some corrections here.
Becoming a parent was the most important thing that ever happened to me. When my younger daughter was in middle school she made me a social media account with the handle Yoga Marathon Mom. My variation of it for an app I use to track my workouts is Bruiser Yoga Mom. (My last marathon was almost 10 years ago.)
This evening when I was exercising, Tessy, pictured above, was there, um, coaching. Then my daughter and her boyfriend who are visiting from out of town came upstairs and kept me company. I enjoy exercising for its own sake but it was a good reminder of my reasons for staying fit: more chances to spend time with the people I love, more opportunities to do the things that interest me. I’ve been lucky in that fitness has been a habit for a long time. And it’s never too late to start if that hasn’t been the case for you.
