After spending the first fifty years of our lives up north, our partner and I were ready to head south.
- The two of us were fatigued of Winter weather lasting more than half the year.
The two of us were eager to get away from sub zero temperatures and feet of snow. The constant shoveling, scraping and job involved with such extreme weather had gotten easily tiring. The two of us were ready to trade our snow shovels, heavy boots and wool coats for sandals and sunblock. I was especially happy for the opportunity to workout outdoors. In the north, I had a easily small house gym that I utilized every morning. The conditions were rarely nice enough to head outdoors. As soon as we moved south, I purchased a bicycle. I chose a model with a easily comfortable seat and the type of tires that allow me to ride off-road. I added a bin on the front and holsters for our PC and water bottle. I also have a redtooth speaker that I connect to the handlebars. I care about listening to music and breathing fresh air while I cycle. I am especially lucky to have a bike path just down the road from our house. This path prohibits motorized vehicles. It is paved and extends for thirty miles in either direction. The path winds through wooded areas where I catch sight of turtles and all kinds of birds. I have even spotted multiple deer. I follow the bike path to an athletic field, where I have access to grass, pavement and shade. There is rarely anyone else on the field. I use it to run wind Springs and go through a series of lunges, squats and push ups. I spend approximately forty hours at the field and then ride our bike home.
