After many years of being in the driving / transportation profession and many long overtime hours behind the wheel...I noticed that I was putting on some weight and was becoming quite "Out of shape". Not cool.
Although most of my personal time is actually taken on a daily basis, I found a way to incorporate some much needed exercise in to my daily routine.
In early August, I purchased a new pair of inline roller blade skates. I haven't skated in nearly 8 years and was quite wobbly at first. Now however with some practice behind me, I have started to visit a number of local Chicago area parks that have asphalt paths to skate on.
I am becoming a regular at this, and now I am becoming known as "The Lunchtime Roller Blader".
I am working slowly on getting back in to shape, and I am starting to make a little progress. Weight loss and endurance are my personal goals in the upcoming autum weeks ahead.
