All endeavor calls for the ability to tramp the last mile, shape the last plan, endure the last hours toil. The fight to the finish spirit is the one... characteristic we must possess if we are to face the future as finishers. Quote by Henry David Thoreau
------------------------------------------

We are walking two and a half miles a day now and next week we'll increase it to three miles. The picture here that I shot early this morning is some of the rough trail with spruce trees on each side.that we walk through in our woods..Not all smooth ground...but exercise is good for the legs, mind, body and soul.

The long trail
Can either be a trial
Filled with strife
If we so fail....
Or the best tale
Of the rest of our life...
We can only try~
The limit is the sky...
To trod the last mile.
Poetry by me AJP

    This sounds daunting! But you`ve obviously gone about it the right way by increasing the distance gradually. Well done!!!

    Congratulations to you both! I like this dark-toned composition. Pretty soon, you'll have to buy all new clothing!

    I like this wooded trail. I am impressed with your increasing distances for walking. It is just to hot here now to walk outside, but I am exercising in my pool.
