Why Excercise?

    A few funnies....

    ** It is well documented that for every mile that you jog, you add one minute to your life. This enables you, at age 85, to spend an additional 5 months in a nursing home at 400. Haven't lost a pound. Apparently you have to show up.

    ** I have to exercise early in the morning before my brain figures out what I am doing.

    ** I don't exercise at all. If God meant us to touch our toes, he would have put them further up our body.

    ** I like long walks, especially when they are taken by people who annoy me.

    ** I have flabby thighs, but fortunately my stomach covers them.

    ** The advantage of exercising every day is that you die healthier.

    ** If you are going to try cross country skiing, start with a small country.

    ** And last, but not least, I don't jog - it makes the ice jump right out of my glass.

    So Prisca,

    You spend many minutes of torture running a mile to add one minute to your life. I think I'll pass. It doesn't sound cost-effective to me.

    hi Prisca,
    I enjoyed the humor. I think Larc doesn't realize
    what jogging involves. It means more than just
    moving limbs. It makes you look at the world out there
    from a interesting perspective, a struggling one.
    Motivation comes to you, both emotional and intellectual.
    And of course an added plus is improved looks.
    I haven't jogged for a long time, but today I'm going
    for it.
    Thanks Prisca, for the motivation,
