If you want to be cuted to death, do a Google image search on “Baby River Otter”, you will want one!

Pam – wow on the arms catching up to the core! In answer to your question – I’m going to the very tip – where the Pilgrims landed (Provincetown) – I have family therel

Have fun! My father in law is from Brewster and we have spent many a spring and fall day fly fishing around Chatam.

Good job, Ron!

I found a nice side effect of all this exercise - went dancing with my husband last night (English Country Dance) and found that I enjoyed it more now I am more fit

Ran my 1st 5k race since December of last year this morning and ran a 23:54.
I was not toothrilled with the time so I went to the gym afterwards to punish my legs for running so slow
Now, I'm of to dig some fence post holes- woohoo!

Great work Ron, I celebrate Newby Gains whenever I can.

Jamie – What Fun that you can go dancing with Hubby – exercise, couples time, and social event all in one!

SW – if my legs pulled off a 5K in under 24 minutes they would get rewards (hot tubs, massage, who knows what they would enjoy!) – the walk in SF sounds great!

Pam, what a beautiful whooo hooo – I’d be terrified!

My run on the Cape was lovely, got some amazing ocean views, lovely trails, I didn’t’ go very fast, it was too pretty, too hilly and sandy – challenging condign but lots of fun, and I kept going 50 minutes while everyone else slept. Ran into a scary dog who seemed to have no owner, and did not want me continuing on my planned route, so I had to backtrack and re-think.
Today, the pilow won ;-(

Abby - the run on the Cape sounds great! Too bad about the scary dog.

I'm giving myself a "pass" for exercise today. Preparing for a colonoscopy, and helping my parents move. If I do something, great, but I'm not going to beat myself up if the next exercise is Thursday's rowing class.
