It's official!  The change in seasons is now unmistakable.  Recent rains, along with warming temperatures and longer days, have combined to bring all of the trees, bushes, and grasses out of dormancy.  I love this time of year!

For me, the change in seasons coincides with a change in my exercise routine.  The Country Music Marathon last Saturday (13.1 miles in 2:07) marked the end of my running season.  Tuesday, I went on my first bike ride.  I went 16 miles in a little more than an hour and burned up 800 calories.  I was excited to see that the Shelby Bottoms Greenway now connects to the old Cornelia Fort Airport runway.  This makes for a perfectly straight, long, level ride.  I enjoy riding from my office to Two Rivers Park and across the pedestrian bridge and into Shelby Bottoms.

I have been hearing from my patients all winter long that the weather has been too bad to walk outside. Well, now is the time to start!  In a few months, it may become too hot to walk outside so start today!   A nice walk burns some calories, strengthens the heart, clears the mind, and even results in fewer back and neck problems.
