Also, although it doesn’t always feel like “fun” at the time I am doing them (haha), I run several days a week and participate in several Wellness classes offered by the University such as Light Weights and Abs and Pickleball. I only started running and faithfully exercising over the past ten years, so I’m not burned out yet -- and curious to see how long I can continue…"
