Taking the stairs

If you had the option to take four flights of stairs up or the elevator, what would you do? For me it would depend on how I was feeling and what shoes I was wearing. I think we all know that there is a benefit to walking up stairs. I mean, there are machines at […]


Dealing with higher altitude

Who knew I would have things to write about while on vacation? As soon as we got to Iris and David’s on Sunday night David poured all of us a glass of bottled water. He told us to make sure to have lots of water because of the altitude. Normally I drink a good amount […]


Staying on track … or not
